Brendon McCullum announces retirement from international cricket

Wellington: Dec 22; Blockbusting New Zealand batsman Brendon McCullum announced Tuesday he will bow out of international cricket after the Test series against Australia in February, saying "all good things must come to an end".

The New Zealand captain's 101st and last Test will be the second Test against Australia which starts in his home town, Christchurch, on February 20.

"I've loved my opportunity to play for and captain the Black Caps," the 34-year-old said.

McCullum said there was "something romantic" about finishing in front of his home crowd and he made the announcement now because his name would be missing when the New Zealand team is named soon for the World Twenty20 in India from March 8 to April 3.
