Black Caps Captain says performance "unacceptable"

New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum says his side showed a lack of resiliency as they suffered a humiliating 203-run to the West Indies in the final one day match against Hamilton.

The Black Caps were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw in the series after they conceded 363 runs and never got close in their run chase, bowled out inside 30 overs.

McCullum says they failed to make the right mental adjustments when things weren't going their way.

He says it was a terrible performance right across the board and totally unacceptible, despite the team's inconsistency.

The Black Caps will now turn their attention to the two match Twenty20 series beginning at Eden Park on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Otago Volts have gone four points clear at the top of the Domestic Twenty20 competition after a last over win against the Wellington Firebirds in Dunedin.

The second placed Northern Knights comfortably saw off the Auckland Aces at Eden Park No. 2 by 29 runs, with the two sides to meet again on Friday night.
