“I was bloody close to quitting New Zealand cricket”, says McCullum

Brendon McCullum in his book Inside Twenty 20 has revealed how the Indian Premiere League lulled him to quit playing for his country.

This Kiwi playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders was a major hit in the first session of IPL which led him to consider the possibility of quitting his national team for concentrating on IPL.

However with a disastrous second session he was able to overcome the IPL allure and reconsider his decision.

He, in order to pay his ‘full and utter commitment’ to New Zealand Cricket team, had to overcome the allure of ‘hundreds of thousands dollars’.
