Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum may have hung his boots at the international level, but he is still an attractive catch for the franchises of lucrative Twenty20 (T20) leagues across the world. He is currently playing in Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and had a decent season in the recently concluded ninth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) and NatWest Twenty20 Blast. Apart from his aggressive batting, McCullum is well known for his acrobatic fielding; something he continues doing in CPL as well. Also Read: Sachin Tendulkar, Chris Gayle chosen as openers in Brendon McCullum’s All-Time XI

In the opening match of CPL 2016 between Trinbago Knight Riders and St Lucia Zouks, McCullum pulled off a stunner while fielding at first slip in an over of Sunil Narine. Zouks were chasing 163 and their opener Johnson Charles was going steadily with his bat as he had scored a half-century including six boundaries and one six. On the fourth delivery of the 12th over bowled by Narine, Charles played a reverse sweep to a slower and wider delivery around the off stump and the ball touched the bottom of his bat while going towards slip. McCullum had already pre-medidated that shot by Charles and had moved slightly towards his right to grab the stunner after juggling it twice.

It was surely an amazing catch by McCullum and it’s credit goes to his excellent presence of mind while analysing batsman’s shot pretty early.

In the end, Zouks chased down the target pretty comfortably with the help of little cameo by their captain Darren Sammy.
