Battling a string of losses, Lahore Qalandars’ captain Brendon McCullum has offered to step down from the post. In the ongoing season of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018, Qalandars are winless so far, having lost 6 consecutive matches under McCullum. McCullum’s latest loss came against Islamabad United last evening.

According to cricbuzz, McCullum said: “Ultimately as captain you’re responsible for the performances. I feel like I’ve done the same things that I do in any team that I’ve led, but unfortunately that hasn’t resonated. So that’s the question we’ve got to ask tonight as well – whether it’s better offloading it to someone else and seeing if we can get better results. Doesn’t matter if you’re saying the right things, but if they’re not hitting home or the instructions aren’t being followed, then you’re always going to be pushing it uphill.”

At time of published this report, he is leading Qalandars’ in their match against Multan Sultans at Dubai. McCullum has previously skippered franchises likes Kolkata Knight Riders in Indian Premier League and Brisbane Heat in Big bash League, apart from being one of New Zealand’s most successful captain. It was under McCullum’s leadership that New Zealand entered their first ever World Cup final in 2015.
