New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum recently announced that he would retire from all forms of international cricket after the home test series against Australia in February. However, McCullum will be available to play for T20 franchises across the globe and in the county circuit.

Big Bash League (BBL) side Brisbane Heat seem to have gained massively from McCullum’s retirement, as he might well lead them in the next season. Heat coach Daniel Vettori hinted that McCullum could take over the captaincy from the next season. “We’ve captained each other, we’ve played in the same team for a long time and now we get to go into a coach-player, coach-captain role,” Vettori said.

“I think the fact that Brendon has exited on his own terms means he’ll be really excited about the future and the upcoming tournaments that he has. “He knows the lay of the land in Brisbane having played here and he’s really excited about joining the side,” Vettori added.

Vetttori gave his inputs about McCullum’s likely future and said, “I think like most retired cricketers there’s still a lot of cricket going on for them.” “I think Brendon will play an important part in the IPL and there’s other competitions throughout the year that he can now get involved with. “I don’t think he’s going to be coming to the Brisbane Heat underdone so we’re going to have a fresh, excited cricketer.”
