Indian fans were out in force as India beat New Zealand by seven wickets to level the T20I series at 1-1.
Brendon McCullum rubbished rumours of his brother's death and vowed to find the person responsible for spreading the fake news.
Veteran Nathan McCullum, Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi were all included in the 15-man New Zealand squad for the World Twenty20, which will be captained by Kane Williamson.
Nathan McCullum has played 84 One-Day Internationals and 61 Twenty20 internationals for his country, having made his debut in 2007.
The 22-year-old debutant removed Sangakkara (55) with the last ball of his tenth over and then had Jayawardene off the first of his next to leave Sri Lanka at 186-4 in their second innings at close on the third day on a Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch which had eased out for batsmen.
Cheteshwar Pujara became the second fastest Indian to get to 1000 Test runs, during the course of his double hundred against Australia in March at Hyderabad, where he put on a 370-run record second-wicket partnership with Murali Vijay. The 25-year-old Pujara has 1310 runs in 15 Tests at an average of 65.50.
The Black Caps, set a revised Duckworth-Lewis target of 198 in 23 overs, replied with 203-6 as Nathan McCullum hit spinner Rangana Herath for three sixes and a four to seal a last-ball win.
New Zealand were 13-1 in reply to Sri Lanka's 288-9 when heavy rain lashed the southern port city and wiped out the rest of the match. Earlier, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara and Angelo Mathews hit half-centuries to lead Sri Lanka to a big total.
The 49-year-old, who played 93 Tests and 269 ODIs for his country, also seemed disappointed with the way Indian cricket board has functioned over the past few years.
Shikhar Dhawan's magnificent 71 was easily the innings of the night as it put to shade half-centuries from three other left-hand batsmen in the match.
