Brendon McCullum may return for final ODI
New Zealand’s outgoing skipper Brendon McCullum is likely to make a comeback in the national side during the ODI series against Pakistan as New Zealand coach Mike Hesson believes that he is making swift progress after aggravating his back injury during the ODI series against Sri Lanka.
“He’s progressing really well and doing plenty of work away from the game, from a fitness point of view and we’re really pleased with the way he’s tracking,” Hesson said. “Hopefully he’ll play a part in the Pakistan series and if he does that will be good prep for the Chappell-Hadlee and beyond.”
It is expected that Brendon McCullum will play the final ODI match of the series against Pakistan on the 31st of January.
The explosive Kiwi batsman is set to retire from international cricket after the home series against Australia next month.
