Brendon McCullum to join Middlesex

Middlesex County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that Brendon McCullum has agreed to play for the club in next summer’s NatWest T20 Blast and the Royal London One-Day Cup. McCullum, who this week announced his retirement from international cricket, will be available to play for Middlesex CCC from the moment his commitments at the Indian Premier League finish through to 25 June.

During this period Middlesex CCC are scheduled to play seven NatWest T20 Blast and four Royal London One-Day Cup matches. Middlesex are also hopeful that McCullum will be able to return to the UK, subject to the team’s qualification, to play for the club in the knockout stages of both these tournaments.

McCullum, 34, will finish his international career as one of the most respected and dynamic cricketers in the modern game. To date he has played 99 Tests, 254 ODI’s and 71 T20 Internationals for New Zealand, scoring more than 14,000 runs. During a stunning career he has scored a Test triple hundred, 15 ‘White Ball’ hundreds and 66 ‘White Ball’ fifties. McCullum’s highest List A and T20 scores are 170 and 158 respectively.

Commenting on the signing of McCullum, Middlesex CCC’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said:

“Signing a player of Brendon’s undoubted quality is a huge coup for the club. He is one of the most respected, capable and dangerous cricketers in world cricket and will create a great deal of excitement around the club. When he walks out to bat everybody stops what they are doing to watch.

“Brendon’s involvement highlights Middlesex’s commitment to white ball cricket and we are all looking forward to working with him both on and off the field. His presence will ensure that Thursday evenings at Lord’s will be ‘must see’ events.”

Commenting on playing for Middlesex CCC McCullum said:

“I am delighted to be joining such an auspicious County as Middlesex and very much look forward to playing at the Home of Cricket”
