A partnership of 84 was then built up between Glenn Phillips and Daryl Mitchell, getting New Zealand out of trouble. The pair would bat sensibly, knocking the ball around, punishing the odd bad ball away. They were also helped in their effort by Sri Lanka’s fielding, as they put down two catches. Mitchell would finally be dismissed by Wanindu Hasaranga with a brilliant wrong ‘un, bringing an end to the partnership.

After steadying the ship alongside Mitchell, Phillips then upped the ante, smashing some brilliant shots and slowly getting his strike rate up. The batter would enter another gear after his fifty, taking the attack to the Sri Lankan bowlers. He would finally bring up his second T20I hundred in the 19th over. Phillips would be dismissed in the final over by Lahiru Kumara but not before scoring a breathtaking 104 off only 64 balls. Phillips hit ten fours and four massive sixes in his brilliant knock.

Mitchell Santner (11*) also made a handy contribution as New Zealand set Sri Lanka a target of 168. Kasun Rajitha (2/23) was the pick of the bowlers for Sri Lanka.
