<strong>Kingston:</strong> New Zealand middle-order batter Glenn Phillips scored a quick-fire half-century, while opener Devon Conway and Daryl Mitchell made useful contributions as the visitors thrashed West Indies by 90 runs in the second T20I here to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series on Saturday (IST). <p></p> <p></p>Phillips first reached the half-century mark off just 31 balls and finally ended up scoring 76 off just 41 balls at a strike rate of 185 as the Black Caps amassed a mammoth 215/5 in their 20 overs, with Hayden Walsh and all-rounder Jason Holder being punished for bowling wayward. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/StatChat?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#StatChat</a> | the 90 run victory in the 2nd T20I in Kingston, Jamaica was NZ's 4th highest winning run-margin in T20Is <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/WIvNZ?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#WIvNZ</a> <a href="https://t.co/lmuKB68W8S">pic.twitter.com/lmuKB68W8S</a></p> <p></p> BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) <a href="https://twitter.com/BLACKCAPS/status/1558239996884447232?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 12, 2022</a></blockquote> <p></p><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p></p> <p></p>With contributions of 42 and 48 from Conway and Mitchell respectively, New Zealand crossed the 200-run mark, exceeding the 185/5 in the opening game which the visitors won by 13 runs. <p></p> <p></p>This was the highest total by a visiting team against the Caribbean side in T20Is. <p></p> <p></p>In reply, West Indies' top order was wiped out in no time and they finally managed a dismal 125/9, with Mitchell Santner (3/15) and Michael Bracewell (3/15) doing the maximum damage, and not allowing a stable partnership to blossom. <p></p> <p></p>Earlier, Phillips added 71 runs for the third wicket with Conway and another 83 with Mitchell as the visitors went on the rampage, scoring 130 off their last 10 overs. <p></p> <p></p>The final T20I will be played at the same venue on August 14, which will be followed by a three-match ODI series. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief scores:</strong> New Zealand 215/5 in 20 overs (Phillips 76, Mitchell 48, Conway 42; McCoy 3/40) beat West Indies 125/9 (Bracewell 3/15, Santner 3/15) by 90 runs.
