McCullum in an interview said, ” I am very happy about the squad selection that England have done. It’s good for both the teams. Since it would suit our aggressive nature of play.”
Young seamer Mark Wood, destructive top-order batsman Alex Hales and wicketkeeper Sam Billings will hope to get the chance to impress.
“I like the look of the squad, I think it’s an exciting squad they’ve picked,” McCullum told Sky Sports.
“It’s obviously a little bit raw but it’s full of talented players who are pretty aggressive with bat and ball.
“England have got some really dangerous players and judging by the comments coming out of their camp they’re looking forward to branching out a little bit,” McCullum said.
The two sides fought out a gripping 1-1 draw in the Test series, with England winning the first match at Lord’s before the Kiwis struck back to seal a comprehensive victory at Headingley last week.
“The Test matches were played in great spirit and I’m sure this will be the same,” McCullum said.
“Both teams will relish the opportunity to pit their skills against the other.”
New Zealand reached this year’s World Cup final playing a supremely positive and energetic brand of cricket.
“The way we went about it throughout the World Cup gives us a good chance and, hopefully, on the back of a pretty good Test series we’ll play a similar style and can continue to build on that,” McCullum said.
