Brendon McCullum will play for Middlesex in their NatWest T20 Blast campaign at Lord's again this season, it has been confirmed.
The former New Zealand captain, who made six appearances for Middlesex in the competition last summer, will be available for nine of their South Group matches in 2017 - including two at Lord's.
McCullum will entertain the crowds at the Home of Cricket in both the London Derby against Surrey on Thursday 13 July and the following Thursday night's match against Essex Eagles.
In addition he will also play in Middlesex's home outground matches, against Somerset at Uxbridge Sports Club on Sunday 16 July and against Kent at Richmond’s Old Deer Park Ground on Tuesday 20 July.
it was an easy decision for me to make to return to Lord's
McCullum said: "I am delighted to be re-joining Middlesex for the coming season and am looking forward to helping the club challenge in the NatWest T20 Blast.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Middlesex last season and it was an easy decision for me to make when the opportunity arose to return to the Home of Cricket."
McCullum, who played 101 Tests for his country and lead them to the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup final, is one of the most destructive batsmen in the game.
The 35-year-old, who retired from international action last year and signed off with the fastest ever Test century against Australia, has a strike-rate of 138 in Twenty20 cricket, with seven cunturies.
Tickets for Middlesex's four NatWest T20 Blast matches at Lord's this summer are now on sale.
