`Time is right,` says retiring McCullum

Johannesburg : New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum has insisted that it was right time to call curtains on his glorious international career despite belting fastest century in the history of Test cricket a few days ago.

The 34-year-old, however, admitted that it was not ‘the ideal way to go out’ as Australia claimed a 2-0 series sweep by winning the second Test by seven wickets in Christchurch on Wednesday.

McCullum, who finished his Test career with 6,453 runs, also expressed that he hoped to be remembered ‘as a guy who played for the right reasons and who, if in doubt, was prepared to take the positive option,’ Sport24 reported.

The pugnacious batsman bid adieu to the international career in his trademark swashbuckling fashion by setting records for the fastest century and most sixes in Test history (107).

He also admitted that he was moved by a guard of honour given by the Australians. (ANI)
