McCullum drops plans to sue Parker
New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum yesterday scrapped plans to sue former skipper John Parker after receiving an apology over claims he said attacked his integrity
Parker alleged earlier this month that McCullum, 31, was aware his predecessor Ross Taylor was going to be axed as skipper late last year, despite the batsman’s insistence he knew nothing about the decision. McCullum, said last week that he would sue Parker for defamation unless the 62-year-old retracted the claims.
Parker complied in a statement issued yesterday through McCullum’s lawyers which said he had not meant to imply McCullum was dishonest or had put his own interests ahead of the team’s.
