Phillips and Mitchell star in series-clinching victory for New Zealand

Glenn Phillips scored 76 runs off of 41 balls, and Daryl Mitchell scored 48 runs off of 20 balls as they powered New Zealand to a 90-run victory over the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica. This victory clinched New Zealand the series victory. In pursuit of a challenging target score of 216, the home team ultimately reached only 125 for 9 on the scoreboard.

In point of fact, the home team had gotten off to a stronger start than their opponents, with left-arm pace bowler Obed McCoy dismissing both Martin Guptill and Kane Williamon from the game. When New Zealand’s score was 36 for 2, and the team was in a bit of a pickle, Devon Conway and Phillips put up a partnership that helped steady the innings by scoring 71 runs off of 46 balls.

Once Conway was given out leg before wicket by Odean Smith, Phillips found an able ally in Mitchell as the pair pressed the presser foot by sharing a breezy partnership of 83 in just over five overs. Once Conway was given out, Phillips found an able ally in Mitchell as the pair pressed the accelerator pedal. During the stand, the two players combined to hit as many as seven sixes, which they used against McCoy, Jason Holder, Hayden Walsh jr., and Smith.

Phillips was eventually taken out of the game as a result of the aggressive batter slicing a ball off of McCoy that was caught by the fielder who was stationed in deep cover. After then, Mitchell took a full and straight delivery from Romario Shepherd, which put him out of the fight. Despite this, by that point, the duo had already pushed the score above the 200-run mark. In the meantime, McCoy completed his innings with stats of three wickets for forty runs off of four overs.

During the chase, the West Indies’ batting lineup once again failed miserably, and by the conclusion of the sixth over, they had fallen to a score of 19 for 4. The spin duo of Michael Bracewell and Mitchell Santner were responsible for all four wickets that fell, and after losing early wickets, the West Indies were unable to come back from their deficit. At the score of 87 for 9, it appeared as though the West Indies were going to be bowled out, but the last wicket duo of McCoy and Walsh played out the remaining overs and kept the West Indies in the game.

It just so happens that McCoy’s score of 23 runs without being defeated ended up being the highest of the West Indies’ innings. Rovman Powell was the only other hitter for the side to reach the 20-run plateau. Powell scored 21 runs. Both Santner and Bracewell got three wickets, but it only cost the team a total of 30 runs because to their efforts. Both Tim Southee and Ish Sodhi were responsible for one wicket.

The brief scores are as follows: New Zealand won against the West Indies by a margin of 90 runs with a score of 215/5 in 20 overs (Glenn Phillips scored 76 and Obed McCoy took 3-40), while the West Indies finished with 125/9 in 20 overs (Obed McCoy scored 23 and Mitchell Santner and Michael Bracewell each took 3-15).
