Glenn Phillips showed an usual way of running during Group A game against Sri Lanka in T20 World Cup.
New Zealand after winning the toss, opted to bat first and posted a total of 167/7 runs on the board in 20 overs. Barring Glenn Phillips, no kiwi batter showed any fight against Sri Lankan bowlers and completed surrendered to them.
Phillips arrived to bat when NZ had lost 3 wickets on 14 runs and then took New Zealand to a decent score of 167 with his astonishing hundred. Phillips scored 104 runs in 64 balls and was the hero of Kiwi side.
In the final over Phillips did something which made everyone praise him for his game ethics. To prevent himself from getting runout, Phillips bent towards the crease just like athletes do before sprinting. And when the bowler delivered the ball, Phillips marched towards the striker’s end with his full potential.
While chasing down the target, Sri Lanka bundled out for mere 102 runs in 19.2 overs. With this defeat, Sri Lanka’s chances for the semifinal are looking dim whereas New Zealand have the strong chance to make place in top 4.
