New Zealand opening batsman, Brendon McCullum was dismissed for 28 by Angelo Mathews after being caught by Nuwan Kulasekara against Sri Lanka in the third of the seven-match ODI series at Eden Park in Auckland on Saturday. Currently New Zealand are 45 for the loss of a wicket with Martin Guptill batting on 11 as Tom Latham makes his way in.

Earlier, Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bowl first as they look to draw second-blood against New Zealand in this seven-match series. A win here for any of the teams would surely put them on the driver’s seat as they would earn a slender lead of 2-1 in the series as they dress-rehears themselves before the ICC World Cup 2015 gets underway from February.
