NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 29/04/2016

In-form Brendon McCullum has helped his Gujarat Lions to a thrilling final-ball win which cements their lead in the Indian Premier League.

Former Black Caps captain McCullum struck 43 off 22 balls to give the Lions momentum after the Rising Pune Supergiants had compiled 195-3 in Pune.

McCullum has passed 40 in each of his last three innings, all at a rapid rate.

Fellow opener Dwayne Smith blasted 63 off 37 as Gujarat reached 196-7, with Australian allrounder James Faulkner scoring the required single off the last ball to post a sixth win from seven games.

Earlier, Australian captain Steve Smith blasted a majestic 101 off 54 balls for the Supergiants.
