McCullum and Steyn announce retirements
New Zealand cricket legend Brendan McCullum has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket at the end of the Global T20 in Canada.
The former Black Caps captain played 101 tests, 260 ODIs and 71 T20 internationals in a career spanning 20 years.
His aggressive approach as a player and captain was a key influence on England’s World Cup winning captain Eoin Morgan.
In similar news, South African quick Dale Steyn has announced his retirement from test cricket, and will now concentrate on the shorter formats of the game.
Steyn missed the Cricket World Cup through injury and hangs up his whites as South Africa’s most successful bowler with 439 wickets.
