Some well-known batsmen, such as Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli or AB De Villiers, who set fire to the stage with their captivating and out-of-the-world strokeplay. This will not be an exaggeration if we say that these batsmen are easily the hottest and best-selling properties in the cash-rich Premier League. But, there is also a name, which has actually started the word 'go' in the world's most followed T20 league – it's none other than Brendon McCullum. Kiwi is always remembered for the IPL's glorious debut with an unbeaten 158 not out against Kolkata Knight Riders against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL. But as good things come to an end, McCullum's special bond with the IPL and Indian fans have reached their peak.
In these years, Makkamam remained one of the biggest attractions in the sub-continent region and enjoyed great pleasure in the Slam-Bang League in particular. After being unsold in the recently concluded IPL auction this year in Jaipur, a period of speculation started that it was the end of the road for New Zealand. But rejecting all the reports, the 37-year-old hit back with an odd post on his official Instagram handle.
McCullum wrote, "It's easy to tiger There is nothing in the old boy yet! "He also highlighted a report which states that at the age of 37, his sharp hands and eyes were not clearly what he once was. Many fans and followers raised voices in support of McCullum and believed that the loss of the IPL due to not taking the services of an explosive batsman would be done.
Former Kiwi captains were among 11 New Zealand cricketers, who failed to find a buyer in the auction. Only two players from New Zealand – Lucky Ferguson and Martin Guptill – managed to get attractive deals.
Earlier, talking to radio sports, McCullum indicated that he could retire from the game in the near future. "It is sometimes the way to go things. I am very lucky, I had 11 seasons in the IPL and at some level you had to get away from the sporting stuff," said McCullum.
"All good things must be finished, and I was very happy to see some Kiwi boys picking up. I am definitely not very worried about it, this game happens occasionally. I definitely wish the other guys And you never know, you never know what can happen in the future, "said McCullum.
The 37-year-old, who played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in last season, scored 2988 runs in 109 IPL matches at an average of 27.70.
