Glenn Phillips smashed the fastest T20I hundred for New Zealand to help the host to a 72-run win against the West Indies Sunday and an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

The middle-order batsman hit eight sixes and 10 fours in his 108 off 51 balls as the host, who won the opening T20 by five wickets, posted a massive 238 for three in their 20 overs after put in to bat first at Mount Maunganui.

The West Indies kept losing wickets at regular intervals in their chase and could only reach 166 for nine.

Colin Munro had taken 47 balls to reach his century against the West Indies at the same ground in 2018 for New Zealand’s fastest hundred in the shortest format of the game, but Phillips bettered the mark by taking a delivery less for his ton.

New Zealand greeted international cricket back in the country with a thrilling five-wicket victory in the first Twenty20 against the West Indies Friday.

None of the West Indies bowlers could make an impact, with fast bowler Keemo Paul returning the worst figures among them, conceding 64 off his four overs.

The 23-year old Phillips added 184 for the third wicket with Devon Conway, who made an unbeaten 65 off 37 deliveries.

The third and final T20 will be played at the same venue Monday before the sides play a two-Test series starting Thursday in Hamilton.
