That's all we have for you from ball-by-ball commentary. Thank you for your company today. We'll see you again tomorrow. Till then, sayonara!

Tim Southee: We spoke about small improvements in all areas. Incredible day for him, not only with the bat but in the field too. He's got that X-factor about him and he's done well against those guys in the CPL and it showed today. Devon Conway has been dominating domestic cricket for a long time and he played very well today, playing second fiddle to Glenn and then exploded himself as well. We knew the opposition would come hard at the bowlers, but we made it tough for them and made sure they never really got going.

Kieron Pollard: 100% went in the opposite direction of what we planned. When we're bat, we're really really bad. Two days ago, we spoke about executive well and discipline. I thought we had them at 80 for 1. But we lost them after that. In terms of energy in the field, that's not the standard we want to set. I think it's a mindset, fielding. Despite conditions and what you've been presented with - people don't want to know it's 15 degrees and it's hard. You need to be up for the fight and you need to be in control of what you're doing. So as a team we have absolutely no excuse in that aspect of the game. Toss is 50-50. Tim said he would have bowled as well because in those overcast conditions we expected fast bowlers to get some swing. But in hindsight, if we had stayed in the contest a little longer, even kept them under 200, we could have done something about it

Glenn Phillips is Man of the Match: Oh my goodness. It's been absolutely unreal. the last time I played here, I saw Colin Munro pummel everything out of the park. And to join him feels so great. Playing with Devon was also so good. You always go in with confidence knowing you've done well against guys before [having played CPL against some West Indies players]. But for me, being able to adapt and adjust to the situation is very important.

ICYMI: Lockie Ferguson and his brother Mitch have developed an app that will help budding fast bowlers around the world better their game. It's called Machineroad and you can read all about it here

6.17 pm New Zealand win the series 2-0 with one game to play tomorrow. They were so far ahead today thanks to Glenn Phillips who made the fastest T20I hundred by anyone from his country. His ability to hit 360 degrees, and his growing strength in hitting down the ground - he's far more natural square of the wicket - should help New Zealand become a proper batting force in the shortest format. To think he might have struggled to get into the XI if frontline players like the captain Kane Williamson had been available to play this series...

comes down the track, making room. Sodhi tries to beat him by angling the ball outside off. But Paul is able to reach out far enough and smash it over the top and down the ground

19.3
Sodhi to Paul, no run

backs away and thumps a flatter delivery on off stump back down the pitch. "Catch" cries the keeper and Sodhi does try, sticking out his right hand, but the shot had far too much power on it

19.2
Sodhi to Paul, no run

pulls his pace all the way down the second he sees Paul shaping to run down at him. It's also wide outside his off stump, forcing him to play a slog sweep instead. Beats him

19.1
Sodhi to Paul, no run

looks to take on a googly, but only inside edges the pull shot

Southee to Paul, SIX runs

they're trying to bounce him out, but he's showing them that he won't be. Pulls and it's got plenty of power in it. Lands in the crowd at deep midwicket

Southee to Paul, no run

pushes down the ground

Southee to Paul, 2 runs

so he isn't quite perfect after all! Phillips running back from cover, tracking a mis-hit loft, is done in as the wind catches hold of the ball and takes it away from his reach

18.2

Southee to Paul, SIX runs

flat, hard, six over wide long-on. Southee going short is allowing Paul to clear his front leg and smack it over the top

18.1
Southee to Paul, no run

ooooooh! He nearly had it! Santner nearly had it. He was so close to pulling off such a spectacular catch! Paul thumps a pull shot to the left of deep midwicket. Santner races after it, dives full length, has it in his hands and then as he comes down and hits the ground, it pops out

Jamieson to Cottrell, OUT

top edge. Skier. Bowler sprints up to claim it. Keeper's on his way too. So Jamieson backs off and Seifert takes it cleanly. Short ball that follows the tailender as he makes room. It comes off the high part of the bat. It's also too quick for him, which is why the ball skews back behind the wicket.

Slim Shady : "Kyle Jamieson's first two Odis - Nz won, first two Tests - Nz won, first two T20IS - Nz on the cusp of winning, what a lucky charm "

Southee to Paul, 1 run

slower ball outside off, he slices it to the left of short third man

16.5
Southee to Paul, no run

bouncer that is angled into the right-hander, that keeps following him as he tries to hook it. Seems to come off the helmet and fly to the keeper's left. Seifert does exceedingly well to track it, dive and catch it and so New Zealand appeal for the catch. The on-field umpire Chris Brown says no so they review. Replays show it bounces over the bat and comes off the side of the helmet grille
