London - A day after saying he's retiring from international cricket next year, New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum announced he's joining Middlesex for the English limited-overs club tournaments.

Middlesex, based at Lord's, said on Wednesday that McCullum will arrive after the Indian Premier League and be available until June 25.

In that time, Middlesex will play seven Twenty20 Blast matches, and four One-Day Cup matches.

If the team reaches the knockout stages in either, it's hopeful that McCullum can return for them.

He has played for Glamorgan in the County Championship in 2006, and in T20s for Sussex in 2010 and Warwickshire this year, when he scored 158 not out off 64 balls against Derbyshire at Edgbaston.

Middlesex is also the home of England captain Eoin Morgan, Steven Finn, and former New Zealand all-rounder James Franklin.

McCullum is retiring from internationals in February after the home Test series against Australia.
