Daryll Cullinan is currently the coach of Royal Bengal Tigers, an ICL team.

Cullinan was the pivot in the batting line up of South Africa from the early to the mid 1990s. He had an interesting competition with Shane Warne. However, Cullinan had such a high regard for the Australian team and possessed a strong desire to prove himself against such a team that he failed on 2 Australian tours. Interestingly, he was successful against all other teams and on all types of tracks. Evidence of this fact is given by his century in 2000 at Galle against Sri Lanka. This hundred was scored against the world’s best off spinner, Muttiah Muralitharan on a turning track. In 1994, Devon Malcolm destroyed the South African batting line up and South Africa was bowled out for 175. In such circumstances, Cullinan batted magnificently and made 94 and was the sole South African batsman who wicket Malcolm could not take.
