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