Glenn Phillips scored 53 at the top of the order

New Zealand A bounce back with seven wicket win

Half centuries from openers Glenn Phillips and George Worker have guided New Zealand A to a seven wicket victory over Pakistan A at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai. 


The New Zealand A side were asked to bowl first and bounced back from their previous encounter restricting Pakistan A to 142/7 from their 20 overs.

Scott Kuggeleijn got the ball rolling early, claiming a wicket in the first over of the match, finishing with 1-24 from four overs.

Meanwhile it was the spin of Ajaz Patel (3-30) and Todd Astle (2-28) that really helped restrict Pakistan A in a much improved bowling display from NZ A.

Chasing 143 for victory, the NZ A batting effort was timed to perfection.

Openers Glenn Phillips (53) and George Worker (53) set a solid platform taking their side past the 100 mark and in sight of the win.

Phillips hit five fours and a six in his innings while Worker found the fence seven times in his knock.

Despite losing both openers within an over of each other, Mark Chapman and Tom Bruce saw the New Zealand A side home in the 19th over, finishing 146/3.
