Glenn Phillips is a New Zealander professional cricketer who has represented his country primarily in the T20I format of the sport, as a wicket-keeper batsman. As of February 2021, he had also represented New Zealand in a solitary test match – in January 2020, against Australia. Before breaking into the senior national team in 2017, he had played for New Zealand at the 2016 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, where the team had finished in a disappointing 12th place after getting beaten by Nepal in a crucial group stage match. Glenn had top-scored for his team with 52 in that game but was unable to prevent a shock 32-run defeat. Domestically, in New Zealand, he has represented Auckland (2014-15–Present) across all 3 formats. A dynamic stroke-maker in the T20 format, he has represented the Auckland Aces (2016-2017) in the Super Smash (New Zealand’s premier domestic T20 tournament) and the Jamaica Tallawahs (2017-Present) in the CPL (Caribbean Premier League).

Glenn Phillips Facts

  1. Born in South Africa, Glenn and his family had moved to New Zealand when he was 5 years old. Interestingly, when he made his international debut for New Zealand, in a T20I match in February 2017, it was against South Africa, his country of birth. Another coincidence was the fact that the match was played at Eden Park in Auckland, his home ground in New Zealand.
  2. He and his younger brother Dale had represented New Zealand at successive editions of the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup (2016 and 2018). While Glenn was a part of the team that finished a disastrous 12th, Dale enjoyed a slightly better performance with New Zealand finishing 8th in home conditions.
  3. He had made his T20 debut in sparkling fashion, scoring 55 runs off 32 balls in a Super Smash game against the Otago Volts, in December 2016. With 369 runs in his debut season in the league, he was the competition’s overall top-scorer.
  4. In that season (2016-17), he had scored at least one century (a score of 100 or more runs) in all 3 formats of the sport becoming the first player in New Zealand’s domestic cricket to do so within a single domestic season. He had also become just the 2nd domestic player in New Zealand, since Hamish Marshall, to have scored centuries in all 3 formats.
  5. In November 2020, in a match against the West Indies, he had scored his first T20I century. It was also his maiden century in any international match. It was the then-record for the fastest century scored by a New Zealand batsman in a T20I match, coming off just 46 deliveries.
