HAMILTON, New Zealand (AP) Brendon McCullum dashed 47 from 27 balls in his final one-day innings but his farewell was soured when New Zealand collapsed to be all out for 246 in Monday's deciding match of the Chappell-Hadlee series against Australia.

McCullum did his best to leave New Zealand in a strong position as he put on 84 for the first wicket with Martin Guptill in fewer than 10 overs.

But the innings fell apart late, as the Black Caps lost their last six wickets for 23 runs in five overs and were bowled out for 246 in the 46th over.

Mitchell Marsh took three wickets to help put Australia in a strong position to win the series, which is tied 1-1.
