Kolkata Knight Riders head coach Brendon McCullum has paid a massive compliment to their captain Shreyas Iyer. The former New Zealand captain said that Shreyas has all the qualities to be the franchise’s player of the decade. The 27-year-old cricketer from Mumbai had earlier led Delhi Capitals (DC) to the final in 2020. He parted ways with the franchise at the end of last season and was picked up by KKR for Rs 12.25 crore at the mega auction.
Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has praised both Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson for their brilliant captaincy in the World Test Championship (WTC). India and New Zealand will take on each other in the WTC final in Southampton from June 18-22. Both Kohli and Williamson have excelled with the bat in the championship and have been lauded for their leadership skills as well. According to McCullum, both India and New Zealand deserve to be in the WTC final for they have been the two best sides.
Tim Seifert who slammed 84 from 43 in New Zealand's comprehensive 80-run victory over India at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington has revealed that he watched former captain Brendon McCullum's knocks on YouTube to prepare for his innings.
