Home skipper Brendon McCullum led the way as New Zealand set up a T20 series decider against England with a commanding 55-run victory in Hamilton.

McCullum smashed 74 from 38 balls, hitting five sixes and six fours to guide the Black Caps to 192-6 from their 20 overs.

Hamish Rutherford and Martin Guptill had given the hosts - who lost the toss and were asked to bat first - a flying start by putting on 75 for the first wicket, with left-hander Rutherford making 40, while Guptill fell three short of a half-century.

McCullum was central in 38 runs coming from the final two overs of the innings and that momentum continued when England began their chase.

Left-arm seamer Mitchell McClenaghan grabbed two wickets in the second over, clean bowling Alex Hales and then having Luke Wright caught at gully for a golden duck.

Jonny Bairstow made just eight before he fell to Ian Butler and, after Michael Lumb was bowled by Nathan McCullum, Butler got rid of Eoin Morgan for 13 - ending with superb figures of 2-9 from his four overs.

England were 62-6 when Samit Patel was run out for six and captain Stuart Broad made a single before was caught in the deep.

The hard-hitting Jos Buttler gave England's total respectability by smashing 54 from 30 balls faced, but the tourists were eventually bowled out for 137, with James Franklin ending with 4-15.
