Brendon McCullum announces retirement from all cricket
TORONTO: Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum announced that he was retiring from all forms of cricket after the conclusion of GT20 in Canada.
Announcing his decision in a statement on Twitter, McCullum said that he won’t be playing in the Euro T20 Slam.
“My style of cricket has always been full of noise, full throttle. From Culling Park to Lords and everything in between, there has been some wonderful memories,” McCullum said.
“Unfortunately the sacrifice needed and commitment required to play that type of cricket have now become too great.”
“I owe to myself and teams I represent to close that chapter rather than just plough on regardless of what I know to be true.”
“It’s been one hell of a ride but I’ve always maintained that all good things must come to an end,’ he added.
He thanked his family, fans, cricketers, coaches, teammates and media for their support throughout his career.
