LAHORE: Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Lahore Qalandars have decided not to retain New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum for the next edition of the tournament.
The former Black Caps captain took to Twitter to announce his departure with the team.
A big thank you to @lahoreqalandars for the past 2 seasons. Today we have parted ways but I leave with fond memories and friendships. I wish you all the best in the future. To the Rana family, a special thank you. Our friendship will always remain. @thePSLt20

McCullum played 18 games for Qalandars with his best score being 44. He led the Qalandars in two editions of PSL with the Qalandars finishing at the bottom in both the editions.
However, it is still unclear if the franchise will retain McCullum in a non-playing role or not.
Thank you to a great leader and inspiration, Baz McCullum for being a part of Lahore Qalandars and bringing his exceptional game forward in the field! We wish you all the success and luck for the future! @Bazmccullum #DamaDamMast pic.twitter.com/EklTbhmEJT
