“He’s good, he had a bit of an issue, a strange injury actually – kidney stones and he had them removed the other day,” McCullum revealed. “He has been good, ever since he had them taken out he has been great. He played football yesterday, which he loves. We saw him really get up for that as well. He’s determined for a big performance today, hopefully, we see the best of him”.

“He started the tournament so well, we know he’s such a world-class player especially in these type of conditions”, said McCullum while Speaking to the host broadcaster ahead of the match against Jamaica Tallawahs.
