Rangpur Riders have signed the former New Zealand Captain Brendon McCullum for the 5th edition of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). [নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ রংপুর রাইডার্সে ব্রেন্ডন ম্যাককালাম]
Though the hard hitter batsman won’t be available from the start of the tournament. He will join after the first 10 days, which means on 15th November.
Rangpur Riders Chief Executive Ishtiaq Sadek told Kaler Kantho: “We have confirmed the signing of McCullum. He will be available from 15th November. If everything goes right, he will play 9 matches for us.”
McCullum has retired from International Cricket long ago but he has been playing T20 leagues all over the world since then. Recently, he has played in the Natwest T20 blast in England and also the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) in West Indies.
Earlier, Rangpur Riders signed another destructive opener Chris Gayle who will join the tournament after McCullum.
But these two will be seen as openers for the first in Bangladesh Premier League and this can surely become an absolute nightmare for the bowlers.
