Waugh quickly realised his blooper on live television and tried to correct himself.Referring to McCullum’s love for horse racing, Waugh said: “Actually he’s got a share in a horse with my wife that [she] trains for him. So yeah he loves his horses. Good punter. He’s a lucky c***, he’s a lucky punter, too.”McCullum, who has been showing a keen interest in horse racing, came up with his own bloodstock company – Vermair Racing Ltd in 2014 in a bid to “build a stable of horses that compete and succeed on the world’s biggest racing stage”.McCullum, who retired from international cricket in 2016, has been plying his trade in franchise-based T20 leagues across the globe. McCullum is currently representing the Brisbane Heat in the ongoing season of BBL.McCullum made 13 off 14 balls as the Brisbane Heat lost to Melbourne Stars by five runs in Sunday’s encounter at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Marcus Stoinis’s all-round effort (29-ball 43 and 4/21) sealed the deal for the home side.Brisbane Heat are struggling in the ongoing season, languishing at the seventh spot in the eight-team table with three wins from 10 matches. McCullum has been in decent form, scoring 245 runs in 10 matches.advertisementAlso Read | Hardik Pandya wants to forget what happened, was terrific in 3rd ODI: Sunil GavaskarAlso Read | Come on yaar: Hardik Pandya furious with Shikhar Dhawan’s fielding effortAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
