Bio

A powerful batsman and insightful captain, Brendon McCullum is a bona fide star.

McCullum caught the eye of coaches and talent scouts from a young age and played age group cricket as he developed.

His one-day international debut for the Black Caps came in 2001-02 against Australia and he now has more than 200 ODI caps and 5200 ODI runs under his belt.

McCullum comes from a family of cricketers, with older brother Nathan also playing for the Black Caps while their father Stuart played first-class cricket during the late 70s and 80s. 

Previously a wicketkeeper, McCullum has now hung up his gloves due to injury concerns.

In 92 Tests he has scored 5870 runs at 38.87 including 11 tons and 28 fifties.
