Keeper-batter Glenn Phillips takes first fifer at home by NZ spinner in 15 years as Australia collapse to 164

After falling behind the game quite a lot on Day 2 of the first Test against Australia, New Zealand made a little comeback with the ball on the third day with all-rounder Glenn Phillips shining with the ball. Phillips, who was once a wicketkeeper, has transformed into a part-time off-spinner and quite lethal at that given he made Australia collapse from 127/4 to 164 all out. Phillips registered his maiden five-wicket haul in Test matches and it was the first one by a New Zealand spinner at home in 15 years.
