McCullum retires from all forms of cricket
The attacking New Zealand batsman Brendon McCullum has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. He won't be playing any level of professional cricket after the conclusion of Global T20 Canada.
He had been set to play in the Euro T20 Slam, but has pulled out of that competition, thanking the organisers for their "understanding".
McCullum was a key member in New Zealand squad that reached the final in 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.
"As much as I am proud of what I've achieved in my 20-year professional career - more than I ever could have dreamed of when I first entered the game - I have felt the drive to keep going harder to maintain in recent months," he said in a statment posted on Twitter.
