McCul­lum turns up heat

Waikato Times - - Sport -

Bren­don McCul­lum claims he didn’t panic when strug­gling through his first four in­nings of the Aus­tralian Big Bash cricket sea­son for Bris­bane Heat. The for­mer New Zealand cap­tain scored 30 runs from those first four knocks, lead­ing to ques­tions to coach Daniel Vet­tori about whether McCul­lum would re­tain his place in the side. Since then, it’s been a happy New Year for McCul­lum, who blasted his third suc­ces­sive half-cen­tury – 69 off 43 balls – for the Heat in their re­sound­ing 101-run win against Mel­bourne Rene­gades at Gee­long on Sun­day night.
