Rumours are pretty common nowadays and people tend to believe the ‘false news’ without checking the authenticity of the source. Recently, one such incident surrounding former New Zealand cricketer Brendon McCullum’s elder brother, Nathan, took place. Ever since morning, a news pertaining to Nathan’s death did the rounds and it didn’t take time in spreading like wildfire.
After the hoax, a few condolence messages also flowed in. The rumour caught Nathan’s eyes and immediately, the 38-year-old cleared the air over the matter. He posted a picture with his friends and wrote that he is ‘alive and kicking’. In the meantime, the fake matter didn’t go down with Brendon by any stretch of the imagination and he dropped in an outrageous tweet.
The 37-year-old also pledged to take the person, who generated the news, to the cleaners. Baz took to micro-blogging site Twitter and wrote, “Tonight someone decided, via social media to release that my brother passed away! Im on a flight back to NZ and my heart broke! None of it is true! Whoever put this out there, I’ll find you! Somewhere, somehow,”
Here is McCullum’s tweet

Baz’s cricketing assignment
As far as his cricketing career is concerned, he recently played for Rajputs in the second edition of the T10 League at Sharjah Cricket Ground. His team started with a thumping 10-wicket victory against Sindhis, led by Shane Watson, but couldn’t progress beyond the qualifying stage. The experienced campaigner was decent with the bat and scored a couple of half-centuries in the event.
The Otago cricketer hung his boots from international cricket back in 2016 and finished on a high with the fastest ever Test century against Australia in Christchurch. He is currently a T20 freelancer and plies his trade in the shortest format across the globe. He was recently released by Lahore Qalandars and Royal Challengers Bangalore, the teams he played for in the PSL and the IPL.
