In reply Ireland lost regular wickets with speedster Lockie Ferguson taking 4 for 14.

Curtis Campher topped scored with 29.

Phillips was named player of the game.

Captain Mitchell Santner says his side had to work hard for the win.

“It wasn’t easy… the composure Glenn showed to get us to a good score and then the bowlers, it was a good win.

“If it wasn’t for Glenn, we were probably looking at 140 or 150 which might not have been enough.

“Wickets in the Powerplay were key and for Lockie and Duffy to do that was good. Lockie’s changes of pace today were outstanding and his legcutter and bumper weren’t easy.”

Game two of the three match series is Thursday morning.
