McCullum’s new challenge as England cricket’s Test coach will be a tough one. The is brand new as the Ben Stokes-led team aim to from their recent poor run in Test cricket. Their humiliating 4-0 defeat in their last Ashes Test series led to a wide-ranging change in the setup of British cricket. Stokes’ appointment as the new Test captain and McCallum’s coach are part of those changes. However, McCallum has no previous experience coaching an international team, or indeed, a longer form — either in Test or first class.

He has only coached Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League and Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.

Indian Dinesh Karthik, who has excelled for KKR in IPL 2022 under coach McCullum, says not previously coaching international teams will add to New Zealand greatness player challenge.

“I think certain things are absolutely new to McCallum,” he said in ICC commentary. “Without a doubt. Although he did his coaching for the Kolkata Cavaliers and the Trimbargo Cavaliers, I think red-ball cricket is a completely different fish pot.”

Karthik that it will be an interesting time for England’s Test cricket team, which also lost a series in the West Indies after their defeat in the Ashes.

“So it’s going to be really interesting when Ben Stokes and McCallum meet up and figure out what the positive way of doing things in cricket is. Because at times they’re obviously facing tough wickets and batting Golfers sometimes need to find a way between being aggressive and being reckless. I think it’s going to be a really interesting battle for them,” Karthik said.

He also revealed how the atmosphere was in the locker room after KKR teamed up with McCullum.

“It’s going to be a very relaxing locker room. I see him as a guy who is very focused on doing a lot of movement off the court and having a lot of fun off the court as well,” Kartic said.


“He put it very much, like a kid who likes to play all possible sports and is also very physically strong. He’s a very strong guy, there’s no doubt about that. Sometimes for a today even So strong. It’s going to be a very relaxing locker room, a very cold locker room.

“It will be very interesting how young people can draw energy from that and make sure they are doing everything right to move British cricket forward.”
