New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka by 115 runs to complete a series whitewash in the third one-day international in Nelson on Tuesday.

Chasing a mammoth target of 365, the tourists were all out for 249 in the 42nd over, with Thisara Perera the best of the visitors' batsmen on 80.

Ross Taylor top-scored for the New Zealanders with 137, and Henry Nicholls was unbeaten on 124 off just 80 balls after the Black Caps lost the toss and were sent in to bat.(AFP)

    Sri Lankans play dumb cricket..Does not know to manage a run chase. Change the captaincy to Dickwella and try..Malinga lacks match awareness. Short of cricketing knowledge to set a a field.

    Guys with run rate of 70 is not use any more. At least they should have 90 scoring rate

    We have to blame the coach and the captain regarding the planning of run chase.All the three departments needs improvement. Mainly for the WORLD CUP we need a better captain.

    I noticed a trend, correct me if I am wrong. There is an indifferent attitude of the players, when Malinga leads the team. It is as if he is running a one man show, Fielding, bating and bowling are sloppy. May be I am imagining, but am I wrong?

    dumbest team combination with ineffective bowlers. The worst, Malinga, a waste of space that should have been there for a youngster. SLC wants to retire him and get the the team home at the world cup at the preliminary round
