New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum will be retiring from all forms of international cricket in February 2016 when the Black Caps will host two-match test series against Australia.
The 34-year-old big-hitter has made the announcement a day after his team won the Test series against Sri Lanka 2-0.
That means, he will not be a part of the World T20 competition to be played in India in March, in the mean time New Zealand’s top order batsman, Kane Williamson will replace McCullum as Black Caps skipper.
“all good things must come to an end,” Mccullum said. “I’ve loved my opportunity to play for and captain the Black Caps.”
