BRENDON McCullum, the recently appointed head coach of the Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR), is now set to become the new head coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).

Both teams are owned by the same group.

The former New Zealand captain retired from all forms of the game earlier this month and will take over from South African Jacques Kallis who was Kolkata’s head coach up to last season.

McCullum said, “The Knight Rider franchises in IPL and CPL have become iconic and have set the standard in franchise cricket. We have fantastic squads in both KKR and TKR and I, along with the support staff will be looking to build on the success both franchises have enjoyed.”

Kolkata has announced that it was parting was with their head coach Kallis and assistant coach Simon Katich who was the head coach of TKR.

The 37-year-old McCullum was expected to play in the Euro T20 Slam from August 30 as an icon player for Glasgow Giants but instead announced his retirement as a freelance cricketer.

He retired from international cricket in 2016, after the Christchurch Test against Australia, but continued to turn out in franchise-cricket leagues around the world, with stints in the IPL with Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, as well as Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash, Lahore Qalandars in the PSL and Trinbago in the CPL, ESPNCricinfo noted.
