Black Caps captain mulling over one day future

8:27 am on 22 June 2015

New Zealand cricket captain Brendon McCullum says he'll take some time considering his one-day international future after the dramatic climax to a 3-2 series loss in England.

McCullum has a long-standing back complaint and there has been speculation that, after 254 matches at this level, the 33-year-old could miss the Black Caps' limited overs-only tour of Zimbabwe and South Africa in August, with the aim of giving Kane Williamson more captaincy experience.

Having led New Zealand to a maiden World Cup final in late March, which they lost to Australia, McCullum says he'll let the dust settle on what's been an incredible summer for his country.
