“Not many individuals can bat in the middle order and attempt (and) pull games out of the fire as he (Rinku) has almost done for us on a couple of times this year.” Just a terrific man, and I'm very happy for him.
“I am headed in a different way with the task of being able to coach England in front of me,” McCullum said, “but I will follow all KKR lads, notably Rinku and all the players I had to do quite a bit in the previous few years.”
