Glenn Phillips stars in Black Caps crushing victory over West Indies with rapid century, NZ take the series


Glenn Phillips starred today as the Black Caps posted a 72-run victory over the West Indies in their second T20 clash at Bay Oval.

Phillips heroics began in the first innings with the 23-year-old blasting his way to New Zealand’s quickest ever international century, facing 46 balls before reaching the milestone.

He was ultimately dismissed with just one ball left in the innings, ending on 108-runs with 10 fours and 8 sixes.

Phillips also gave fans a scare after collapsing in pain due to his right kneecap popping out of place again, the exact same incident which took place in the first T20.

Devon Conway out in the middle for the entirety of Phillips innings with the two working in tandem superbly posting a 184-run partnership.

Conway went on to amass 64 runs in what was his second international appearance.

With New Zealand posting a target of 239, Phillips continued to shine in the second innings with two catches and a runout.

Despite batting for over an hour in the first innings, he showed no signs of fatigue, instead pulling off the catch of the game in the second innings – an acrobat boundary line catch.

The Black Caps return to the Bay Oval tomorrow to do it all again in the third and final T20 of the series.
