Melbourne: His Indian Premier League side, Kolkata Knight Riders, may not have qualified for the inaugural Champions League Twenty20, but Brendon McCullum is in a two-way race to play in the tournament and is likely to turn out for his home side Otago Volts instead of New South Wales.

Having played for NSW in the Australian Twenty20 final last season, McCullum is eligible to play for both the Sydney side as well as Otago in the Champions League to be held in India in October.

But as per the regulations of the tournament, if a player is eligible for more than one Champions League team, his overseas side will have to pay his home side $250,000 as transfer fee to secure his services.

Otago chief executive Ross Dykes confirmed that he had spoken to McCullum who hinted that he would be playing for his home province.— PTI
