Former New Zealand captain and destructive opener Brendon McCullum is all set to replace Steve Smith in the Multan Sultan squad for HBL Pakistan Super League 2019 season. The team is saddened by the loss of Steve Smith due to respective injury but we’re keen to have McCullum in the side as Smith’s replacement.
The source mentioned that it would be difficult to replace player like Steve Smith in the roster but we’re forced to do so. However there are few options in the platinum category but we’re focus on bringing player having caliber like Smith poses and McCullum fits in the role.
The fact is Brendon lead New Zealand side and has been one of the destructive batsmen in the cricket especially in twenty20 format. McCullum was in our choice while picking player in the draft but Smith was chosen over him.
“McCullum was in the race to be in our squad but eventually Steve Smith was the first choice. Baz wasn’t in prime form last year and he struggled in other leagues as well. But his recent performance in Big Bash League, has enforced us to think about him again and we’d be making final call within a week,” he added.
