McCullum silent on quitting captaincy

Johannesburg: Kolkata Knight Riders are virtually out of the IPL contest but skipper Brendon McCullum is still mum on his decision to quit captaincy.

"At the moment, all that I am focusing on is the next few games. Trying to do whatever I can, try as hard as I well possibly can to get something going," McCullum said after the team slumped to a seven-wicket defeat against the Delhi Daredevils in Johannesburg on Sunday night.

McCullum had earlier said that he would quit captain's job if the team missed the semifinal berth but the Kiwi didn't give a straight answer when asked if he was going to quit any time soon.

"I know I mentioned that a couple of games ago and that is something that I have got to look at. I'll work out with the coaching staff next year, what the goal is.

"But whatever happens I will be totally committed to Kolkata Knight Riders and helping to get us get some results in the future that we all are immensely proud of," he said.

Looking back at the team's dismal performance in the tournament, McCullum felt it was a combination of bad luck and poor execution that did the side in.
