Here are the HIGHLIGHTS New Zealand beat Sri Lanka T20 World Cup 2022
Glenn Phillips of New Zealand demonstrated why he is one of the best batters in T20 cricket right now with a blistering century against Sri Lanka in Group 1 Super 12 of the T20 World Cup 2022. He smashed 104 off 64 balls to help New Zealand reach 167/7 after 20 overs. His innings featured ten fours and four sixes. He came in to bat in a precarious situation, with New Zealand having lost both openers and captain Kane Williamson for pennies on the dollar. The scoreboard read 15/3 before Phillips and Daryl Mitchell combined to put a fighting total on the board.
Phillips set one massive record on his way to his hundred. His 102 is the best T20 World Cup knock by a batter batting at No. 4. Phillips is the first batter in T20 World Cup history to score a century while batting at No. 4 or lower. Not to mention, Phillips has hit the second-most sixes in T20s since 2021. He trails Liam Livingstone, who has 152 sixes in T20s.
Except for Phillips, no one showed up for Black Caps. Mitchell was the Kiwis’ second-highest scorer, with 22 off 24 balls. That is significant because it informs you about the impact of Phillips’ knock. Not to mention, Phillips was extremely fortunate to have survived. Pathum Nissanka was the culprit who dropped him when he was batting on 12. Wanindu Hasaranga could have taken his wicket early in the innings, putting New Zealand even further behind.
Sri Lanka’s chase of 168 got off to a disastrous start. By the time this article was written, they were 58 for 6 after 10 overs of chasing. New Zealand appeared to be on track to qualify for the T20 World Cup semi-finals.
