Nathan McCullum Rubbishes His Death Reports, Brother Brendon Vows to Find the Culprit

Ex-New Zealand all-rounder Nathan McCullum quashed a bizarre rumour on Saturday that he had died. The 38-year-old posted a selfie and wrote on Twitter, "I am alive and kicking more than ever before. Not sure where this news has come from but this is fake. Love you all."




After the fake news spread like wildfire, Wikipedia too updated their page to suggest his demise, before reverting back to reflect that nothing untoward had happened.

In fact, a report in nzherald.co.nz suggests that some of the Indian cricketers contacted New Zealand Players Association chief executive Heath Mills to confirm about the same.

Mills called McCullum himself to check. "I have to say, my heart was racing before he picked up."




The whole incident did not go down too well with younger brother Brendon. He vowed to find the culprit.
