Gloucestershire Signs Glenn Phillips
New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Glenn Phillips has been signed by Gloucestershire for this year’s Vitality T20 Blast.
Glenn Phillips, 24, has a career T20 strike rate above 140 and an average of 30.30 as well as his country’s fastest T20I century – 46 balls against West Indies.
“I’m really excited to join up with Gloucestershire and can’t wait to get over to Bristol soon,” he said.
“I’ve always been keen to experience county cricket and I’m very grateful to Gloucestershire for giving me the opportunity.”
Gloucestershire head coach Ian Harvey said: “I’ve followed him quite a bit over the last couple of seasons; Glenn is very exciting to watch and he’s going to add a massive amount to what is already a powerful T20 batting lineup.
“He can bat at the top of the order, in the middle, and also add to our firepower at the end. He’s a bit of an all-rounder because he bowls and keeps wicket as well so he will give us plenty of options and I’m looking forward to getting him in the team.”
