Brendon McCullum to retire from all forms of cricket

Legendary New Zealand cricketer Brendon McCullum announced retirement from all forms of cricket. Ongoing Global T20 Canada will be the last venture in his cricket career. He was expected to get featured in Euro T20 Slam but pulled out himself from the competition.

McCullum had taken retirement from an international career in 2015 but was a familiar face in T20 cricket across the globe. A legendary Kiwi cricketer, McCullum has smashed 6083 runs in 228 innings with a strike rate of 96.37. His T20 career, inclusive of all leagues has 9922 runs from 370 games so far. He kicked off the Indian Premier League with a 73-ball 158 for Kolkata Knight Riders. Since then Baz has become an in-demand player for the T20 leagues around the globe. He is currently second in the list of highest T20 run-aggregators of all-time, with only Chris Gayle is ahead of him.

Brendon McCullum is currently playing in Global T20 Canada league and he took to Twitter to announce his retirement from all forms of cricket. He wrote, “My style of cricket has always been full noise, full throttle. From Culling Park to Lord’s and everything in between, there have been some wonderful memories. Unfortunately, the sacrifices needed and commitment required to play that type of cricket have now become too great.”

Baz, went on to express his pride and gratitude for being able to represent Black Caps. New Zealand’s journey to the finale in 2015 World Cup would not have been possible without him. “With New Zealand, we broke boundaries and established a style of play that earned us respect across the world. In T20 cricket, I’ve enjoyed so many varied challenges, I can leave the game knowing I left no stone unturned.”
