Brendon McCullum, the former New Zealand captain, has been ruled out of the rest of the Caribbean Premier League after he sustained a blow on his arm while playing for Trinbago Knight Riders against Barbados Tridents, on Sunday (September 3).

After composing a fine hand of 26, McCullum was hit on his left arm by pacer Wayne Parnell. The opening batsman also retired hurt after suffering the blow and was taken to the hospital where x-rays showed that he had fractured his arm.

McCullum took to Twitter to announce that he was ruled of the remainder of the CPL.

Parnell finished with impressive figures of 3 for 31 to help his side register a 16-run win. However, despite slipping to a loss, Trinbago are perched at top of the table with 16 points and have already qualified for playoffs.
