Nathan McCullum International Career

On September 19, 2007, at the first Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa, he played his first Twenty20 International match for New Zealand against South Africa. After his T20I debut, he was cut from the squad, so he worked harder with Mike Hesson to earn his spot back in the New Zealand squad. Additionally, he was left off of the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy.

At the age of 27, he made his One Day International debut against Sri Lanka on September 8, 2009, in Colombo. He had been away from the national team for two years, and it was his comeback. Despite never participating in a test match, he has been a tremendous asset in the shorter formats of the game, notably in the 2011 Cricket World Cup in the sub-continent, when New Zealand reached the semifinals.

He missed New Zealand's opening game against Kenya in February 2011 because he was hospitalized because of a fever. In the 2011 World Cup quarterfinal game against South Africa, when he took 3/24 in a low-scoring contest while defending 221, he was vital. Although Nathan has been a consistent member of New Zealand's limited-overs team since the 2010s, his opportunities have occasionally been limited by the presence of Daniel Vettori, who for a while functioned as the team's top spinner.

Despite being included in the final 15-man roster for the 2015 Cricket World Cup, he was mostly employed as Daniel Vettori's backup fielder. McCullum declared in 2015 that he will give up all forms of cricket after the conclusion of the summer of 2015–16 in the Southern Hemisphere. His ODI career is finished because he was not selected for the Sri Lankan ODI series owing to back problems, however, he was selected for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20. On March 26, 2016, he played in his final international contest against Bangladesh. He became Mustafizur Rahman's seventh T20I victim as he was dismissed for zero on the opening ball.
