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 Lahore Qalandars for the past two 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,” he wrote.
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.
Further, a decision regarding the new captain is likely to be made following this month’s players draft for the league.
According to sources, Qalandars will have a new captain for the next edition of the tournament.
The fourth edition of PSL will start from February 14th, 2019 with eight matches being scheduled to be held in Pakistan.
