Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum has praised the Black Caps and their incredible rise in world cricket at the moment.

New Zealand has set high standards for the way the game is played in true spirits. Other teams were praising the Kiwis for their positive cricket and the spirit in which they play their cricket.

McCullum, who retired in 2015, has also praised skipper Kane Williamson. The 36-year old had ensured New Zealand played some aggressive brand of cricket. But Williamson had made sure the side will have more consistency in their game.

“The boys have done really well, the New Zealand team is progressing really well,” McCullum said. “That is one of the reasons why I stepped away when I did, because the team needed someone to come in and take the team in a different direction.

“My style of leadership, when I was leading New Zealand, (it was) quite consuming. It is, sort of, to go after everything. I think Kane (Williamson) was preparing to take the team to a more consistent level and he has done that.”

McCullum was forced to retire early in his career due to his back problems. However, it is no secret he played a massive role in the transition of New Zealand cricket. Kane Williamson had recently praised his predecessor for his excellent work to let New Zealand cricket grow.

“He (McCullum) was huge in setting an environment where we wanted to play the game in a certain way. It reflected in the way we went about our business in terms of on-field, but the work went into the off-field stuff (as well), and I suppose that’s really important,” Williamson said.

McCullum is currently playing in Indian Premier League for Royal Challengers Bangalore. He is still a huge threat for bowlers across the world and is looking for yet another successful T20 campaign in India.

Speaking about New Zealand cricketers, the veteran batsman had praised them as fantastic people. He was very happy with the way the brand of New Zealand cricket is spreading across the world.

“They (New Zealand) are not just very, very good cricketers, they are fantastic people as well,” he said.

“That is something that the country is very proud of – how those guys hold themselves as people. The brand of New Zealand cricket is now starting to build up pretty strongly, not just in New Zealand but around the world. (It has reached this stage) on the back of good performances, but also good people.”
