New Zealand’s Glen Phillips had a brilliant performance against Sri Lanka on Saturday. Phillips scored a stunning century – the first of the Super 12s in the T20 World Cup – as the Kiwis reached a fighting score of 167/7 in 20 overs in Sydney. With 104 off 64 deliveries, Phillips was the catalyst for New Zealand in the innings as the next highest scorer was Daryl Mitchell on 22.

Phillips was lauded for his unique technique of avoiding the dismissal of the non-striker.
