McCullum and Watling scored 229 (not out) and 124 runs respectively to break the previous record of 351 which was put together by Mahela Jayawardene and Prasanna Jayawardene in 2009 against India.
McCullum and Watling's marathon stand came to an end when latter was trapped LBW by Mohammed Shami in the first over after the new ball was taken.
In the course of the partnership, McCullum became only the sixth player in history and the first from New Zealand to score two double centuries in back-to-back Test matches.
This was also McCullum's third double hundred – all these big knocks have come against India.
Watling joined McCullum when New Zealand were tottering at 94 for the loss of five wickets.
