NZ vs WI: A look at the numbers from Glenn Phillips' record-breaking ton
Kiwi wicketkeeper-batsman Glenn Phillips made the most out of his opportunity on Sunday as he smashed his maiden T20I ton to power New Zealand to a 72-run victory over West Indies in the second T20I of the ongoing three-match series. Phillips broke a number of records on the way to his knock of 108 off just 51 deliveries. Here we take a look at those numbers.
Fastest T20I hundred for New Zealand
Phillips has now overtaken Colin Munro to claim the record for the fastest T20I hundred by a Kiwi batsman. His hundred came off just 46 deliveries. The previous best was 47 by Munro, at the same venue and against the same opposition, in 2018.
Highest T20I partnership for New Zealand
The partnership of 184 between Phillips and Devon Conway is now the highest in T20Is for New Zealand. The previous best was 171* by Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson against Pakistan in 2016.
Highest runs added by a non-opening pair in T20Is
Phillips and Conway's partnership is now the highest stand by a non-opening pair in T20Is. The previous best was 182 by Eoin Morgan and Dawid Malan against New Zealand in November last year.
Most runs by a batsman in post-powerplay overs in T20Is
If batsmen of top teams from ICC rankings are considered, no one has made more runs than Phillips' 108 while walking out to bat after the powerplay phase. Phillips walked out to bat in the seventh over and took the Caribbean bowlers to the cleaners after that. The previous best was 101 by David Miller against Bangladesh. He had walked out to bat in the 10th over of that match.
Fourth Highest T20I score from No.4 or lower
Phillips' score of 108 is the fourth-highest in T20Is from number 4 or lower. Only Shaheryar Butt (125*) of Belgium, Glenn Maxwell (113*) of Australia and KL Rahul (110*) of India have scored more runs in an innings than Phillips while batting at No.4 or lower.
Third T20 Hundred overall
This was Phillips' third hundred if his overall T20 career is considered. His previous two hundreds -- 103 and 116* -- came against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots and Central Stags in the 2018 Caribbean Premier League and 2016-17 Super Smash respectively.
