IPL season over for injured McCullum

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 5/05/2017

Brendon McCullum's Indian Premier League season has ended three games early because of a hamstring injury.

The former Black Caps skipper suffered the strain during a seven-wicket loss to the Delhi Daredevils on Thursday, a result which ended their semi-final hopes.

McCullum will be unavailable for the last three matches, ending a campaign which featured 319 runs, the 10th-most by any player in this year's league.

In a tweet, McCullum stated that the "compressed tournament and long travel" had taken a toll.

Despite his efforts, seventh-placed Gujarat had won just three of 11 games.
