Later that year, he made his T20 debut and had an excellent season. Phillips scored 55 in 32 balls on T20 debut before going on to make 369 runs in his debut T20 season. He was soon handed a T20I debut against South Africa at home. He was around the New Zealand T20I team for about a year to 18 months. However, low returns meant that he was ousted from the side. However, he did get an opportunity in the Test side earlier this year (2020). He scored a fifty on debut but hasn’t played since.

Ever since he has been out of the New Zealand T20I team, Phillips has been taking part in T20 leagues. However, he is just 23 years old and has ample time in his career. He can turn things around and get back in the New Zealand national side.

T20I Career

After a fantastic season in the 2016-17 Super Smash season, Phillips was given an opportunity as a 20-year-old. He made his debut against South Africa in February 2017 but didn’t really make an impact on the game as he scored just five. He travelled to India later that year and played just one game, scoring 11. In the 2017-18 home season, Phillips finally came to the party against the West Indies. He scored 56 batting at No. 3 in the first T20I of the series.

However, that was his only score in excess of 30. He flattered to deceive in the rest of the series and followed it up with another poor series against Pakistan, scoring just eight runs in two innings. He last played T20Is in late 2018 when New Zealand toured the UAE. The wicket-keeper-batsman scored 43 runs with a strike rate of 84.31.

Overall, Phillips has played 11 T20Is and has batted in 10 innings. He has amassed 140 runs at an average of 15.56 and a strike rate of 100.00 in his T20I career so far.
