#IPL2019: This is what McCullum is thinking after going unsold

Brendon McCullum would have liked to see his name being picked by a franchise in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 Auction.

But that did not happen.

McCullum was one of the many high-profile players that went unsold.

The former New Zealand cricket team captain has now hinted that he may retire from cricket.

Here's more.

After being released by RCB, McCullum set his base price at Rs. 2 crore, but the veteran star didn't attract any bids.

In earlier editions, he was one of the top buys across several franchises.

Baz, who has played 356 T20 matches, has gone on to amass 9,620 runs in the format.

He helped Trinbago Knight Riders defend the 2018 CPL.

McCullum lucky to have played in 11 IPL seasons

McCullum told Radio Sport, "That's the way things go sometimes. I've been very lucky, I've had 11 seasons in the IPL and at some stage you need to transition away from the playing stuff."

The celebrated cricketer had retired from international duties in 2016.

Since then, Baz has continued to play in global T20 leagues around the world.
