AUCKLAND: Brendon McCullum said he expects to return to the New Zealand team for the deciding one-day international against Pakistan in Auckland on Sunday, however explosive opener Martin Guptill is now doubtful.

Captain McCullum, whose farewell tour has been disrupted since a back injury flared up five weeks ago, said he expected to play in the last match against Pakistan and then the Australia series in February before retiring.

“I’ve had a good couple of hits,” he said of his work in the nets over recent days.

“It’s probably not 100 per cent but there’s a bit of stiffness so hopefully I’ll be fine for tomorrow.”

New Zealand, who beat Pakistan 2-1 in the Twenty20s, comprehensively won the first ODI by 70 runs with the second match washed out.
