Indian women's team cricketer, Deepti Sharma reignited the Spirit of Cricket debate after she ran out Charlie Dean, who tried to back out of the crease during the third ODI of the series at Lord's. Following the incident, numerous cricket experts put forward their opinions on the same.
While some supported the Indian cricketer for her on-field antics, several others criticized her reasoning that it was against the spirit of the game. Meanwhile, New Zealand batter, Glenn Phillips has invented a new technique to avoid getting run out at the non-striker’s end and that will also get the right momentum to set for a run pretty quickly.
During the final over of New Zealand’s innings bowled by Lahiru Kumara, fans witnessed Phillips taking a crouch position at the non-striker’s end. You can watch the video here:

Apart from that, Glenn Phillips also made headlines in the match for notching his second hundred for New Zealand in T20 internationals. He came at the crease when New Zealand were in all sorts of trouble at 7 for 2 and Williamson’s wicket made it 15 for 3 in 4 overs.
Phillips then stitched an 84-run partnership with Daryl Mitchell to lead a remarkable recovery for the team. Mitchell got out after scoring 22 off 24 but Phillips kept scoring boundaries and took the team to a formidable score of 167 runs at the end of the first innings.
Glenn Phillips starred with the bat for the team as he blazed his way to a 104-run knock in just 64 deliveries, including 10 fours and 4 sixes. In reply, Sri Lanka were bundled out for 102 in 19.2 overs, handing the Blackcaps a 65-run win. With that win, New Zealand have reached the number one position on the Group 1 table with 2 wins in 3 matches.
Kane Williamson and Co. will be playing their next match against England on Tuesday.
