Kolkata: Former New Zealand opener Brandon McCullum, who played a memorable 158-run innings for KKR in the IPL, has been appointed by KKR as its coach. According to Sources, KKR has contracted him as an assistant coach in his team. McCullum, who recently retired from international cricket, will also join the Caribbean Premier League team Trinidad nightriders as the head coach. He will replace Simon Katz, who was the head coach of both the teams.
McCullum retired from international cricket in 2016. He continued to participate in the world's T20 league tournaments. He was associated with the Kolkata team in his start-up season and had scored 158 runs in the first match of the IPL. He had been associated with KKR for five seasons and captained the team in 2009.
McCullum had said a few days ago that he would not play in any format of cricket after the Canadian T20 league was over. He had tweeted that after the league is over, I will say goodbye to cricket and will not play in any format. McCullum is the most successful batsman after Chris Gayle in the smallest format of cricket. The record of highest sixes in Test cricket is also in the name of Makumal, while he also had the fastest century in Test history.
