Sussex Signing

Dunedin cricketer Brendon McCullum, 28, has signed with Sussex for this season’s Twenty20 competition. The big-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman replaces Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan. “Brendon was always on our shortlist for 2010 and once New Zealand’s tour to Zimbabwe was postponed we made our move,” said Sussex’s professional cricket manager Mark Robinson. “His power at the top of the order can give us the start we need to help us defend our 2009 title success.” McCullum’s exciting and innovative shot making was highlighted in the recent Twenty20 international against Australia in Christchurch, when he made an unbeaten 116 off only 56 balls and was scooping sixes and boundaries behind the wicket off the pace bowler Shaun Tait.
