Phillips scored 104 in 63 balls against Sri Lanka and won the Player of the Match award.
Phillips' effort came in the second ball of the 9th over being bowled by Mitchell Santner.
The umpires had to confirm from the television replays that a run was saved in what was a commendable effort.

There was a livewire on the field in form of Glenn Phillips who was still giving it all for his side, despite the match almost done and dusted.
Although the RR batsman could not score any runs on the no-ball, he smashed an extravagant boundary on the subsequent free-hit.
The explosive batter spoke on various topics including what made him choose the Royals, playing in the IPL, not idolizing one player, etc. after finishing his stint in the CPL.
The franchise have announced Glenn Phillips as Buttler's replacement for remainder of the season.
Although Phillips managed just 2 runs with the bat in this encounter, he has been in superb form in the tournament.
