New Zealand batsman Glenn Phillips has joined the Jamaica Tallawahs and will be the Caribbean Premier League franchise’s fifth overseas player.
Phillips, who made his international debut in a Twenty20 International against South Africa in February this year, was the top-scorer in the 2016/17 Super Smash, which is New Zealand’s domestic Twenty20 competition. The 20-year-old struck 369 runs in 10 innings, which included a century and three fifties.
“Glenn is valuable to any team he joins as he can turn a game on its head with his batting. He is also handy behind the stumps so to have him as a keeping option is also helpful for the Tallawahs,” assistant coach Mark O’Donnell said.
Shakib Al Hasan, Kumar Sangakkara, Mohammad Sami and Imad Wasim are the other foreign players in the squad.
