T20 World Cup 2022 Points Table – Updated Team Rankings after NZvsSL Match: The Black Caps have stretched their winning run in the ongoing edition of the T20 World Cup following a rather commanding victory against Sri Lanka on 29th October at the SCG. The New Zealand vs Sri Lanka fixture result has also impacted the T20 World Cup 2022 Points Table for Group 1.

Flamboyant Glenn Phillips struck a scintillating century (105 runs) to help New Zealand post a total of 167 runs in 20 overs. He rescued his side from an early debacle to a comfortable position with his fantastic strokeplay. 

The Kiwis were three down at just 15 runs score when Glenn Phillips arrived and stitched a strong partnership with Daryl Mitchell. Although Phillips majorly accounted for the 84-run partnership, Daryl Mitchell did exceedingly well to hold his end and not let the Sri Lankan bowlers take any further wickets.

At the end of 20 overs, the Kiwis managed to amass a competitive total of 167 runs.

The Asian T20 champions, couldn’t answer the probing opening spell from Tim Southee and Trent Boult. The pace duo kept scrutinising batters and never let Sri Lankan batters take the flight.

Bhanuka Rajapaksha and skipper Dasun Shanaka scored 34 and 35 runs respectively as New Zealand packed them to a scanty score of 102 runs. Trent Boult was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets while spinner Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi scalped two apiece.

With the victory, New Zealand took one more step towards the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final. The Kiwis consolidated their position atop the points table in Group1 with 5 points and a colossal net run rate of +3.850.
