Retiring Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum will be one of the six marquee players at this year's Caribbean Twenty20 Premier League.

McCullum and Black Caps teammate Martin Guptill have both been confirmed into the Player Draft which takes place on Thursday week.

They join fellow Twenty20 heavyweights including Faf du Plessis, Kumar Sangakkara and Shane Watson who'll each be assigned to one of the six franchises.

The tournament will be played over six weeks starting at the end of June.
