Brendon McCullum to retire from Cricket
Former New Zealand skipper, Brendon McCullum announced on Monday that he would be retiring from cricket at the end of the ongoing Global GT20 tournament in Canada.
One of the strongest and powerful hitters of his generation, McCullum, 37, arrived in New Zealand for the 2015 World Cup final, where they were defeated by Australia.
He also won praise for the aggressive but sporty manner in which he captained his country, before leaving international service in 2016 after his 101st test match.
McCullum has spent the last few years playing in T20 competitions around the world, his last stint with the Toronto Nationals.
Brendon McCullum Said:
It is with pride and satisfaction that today I am announcing my retirement from all cricket stopping the GT20 in Canada, McCullum wrote on social media.
As much as I’m proud of what I’ve achieved in my 20 years of professional career, more than I could have dreamed of when I first entered the game, I’ve felt the urge to keep working harder in the last few months.
I look back with pride at the way I played the game and what I’ve achieved. I can leave the game knowing I didn’t leave any stones unturned, he added.
It’s been an amazing journey, but I’ve always maintained that all good things must come to an end.
