The former New Zealand Captain & Kolkatta Knight Riders coach Brendon McCullum said that he is missing the “carnage of IPL” but it is also comforting & secure to be at home as the world battles a Pandemic, which has made isolation the new normalcy of the era. McCullum, who was titled the head coach of Kolkatta Knight Riders for the Indian Premier League, said that the current situation makes it essential for everyone to stay at home and maintain social distancing which is the only way to curb and stop the spread of the virus, which has caused thousands of deaths worldwide.
“Spot on, it’s a far cry from the carnage of the IPL and also in India but it’s quite nice, secure and comforting to be at home under these circumstances. I was quite busy in the last three years and this break has allowed me to spend some time with the family”, the former wicket-keeper batsman told to a leading media.
Brendon McCullum has shifted his basement to Matamata, a town situated in the shadow of the Kaimai Range Mountains on New Zealand’s North Island after his retirement in the year 2016 to take care of his horse syndicate business, Vermair.
He is very happy to get time to work towards his passion besides taking care of horses, McCullum revealed that he is also trying his hands in brewing.
“Racing game has stopped in New Zealand which is a bit disappointing but it’s the right decision. However, in Australia, the racing is still going on and they think they will be able to conduct the race in safe surroundings and that’s good for our point of view”.
“I have 12 horses in the property which is more than I should have in the property”, he said. “Little bit of extracurricular activities at home is currently my focus”. Brendon McCullum has said that the reports of him going to an Irish pub during the lockdown period are fake.
“I was not there, I prefer o drink in the comfort of my home and I invite special and close people to taste my specially home brewed stuff”, he said
