Glenn Dominic Phillips (born 6 December 1996) is a New Zealand cricketer, born in South Africa, who represents the national team and plays for Auckland domestically. In December 2015 he was named in New Zealand's squad for the 2016 Under-19 Cricket World Cup.

Domestic and franchise career
Phillips made his Twenty20 debut on 4 December 2016 in the 2016–17 Super Smash against the Otago Volts, making 55 off 32 deliveries opening the batting. He was the highest run-scorer in the Super Smash, with 369 runs. He scored his first century (116 not out) in the final regular season match against Central Districts where the Stags won by Duckworth-Lewis. He became the second domestic player since Hamish Marshall to score centuries in all three forms of the game, with Phillips being the first to do so within a single domestic season.
In February 2017, he was added to New Zealand's Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for their series against South Africa, after Martin Guptill was ruled out due to injury. He made his T20I debut for New Zealand against South Africa at Eden Park, Auckland on 17 February 2017.
