Former BLACKCAPS skipper Brendon McCullum has revealed he couldn't watch one of the most dramatic endings in New Zealand cricketing history.

In his biography Brendon McCullum - Declared, which is released today, McCullum says that he was crushing a dart in the team toilets with two caterers in the final moments of the thrilling semifinal win over South Africa at Eden Park.

With New Zealand needing five runs off the final two balls, Grant Elliott hit a six off South African pace bowler Dayle to seal a famous win.

Wanna relive that moment as commentated by the ACC with the added soundtrack of Celine Dion from Titantic?

McCullum explains in his book that it took in the victory from an unusual vantage point. Read it at NZ Herald
