Phillips debuts as New Zealand bowl
Between these two Southern Hemispheres teams, South Africa have always enjoyed upper hand over New Zealand in all three formats. New Zealand named 20-year-old Glenn Phillips to make his global debut as an opening batsman to partner captain Kane Williamson.
The 34-year-old played 112 times for the All Blacks over a 12-year period.
Carter said he was glad no one was harmed.
Carter, along with Racing teammate and other former All Black Joe Rokocoko tested positive for traces of corticosteroids in a random testing conducted on the evening of the French Top 14 Final in June past year where their club defeated Toulon 29-21. He holds the record for the most points in Tests with 1598.
They were later cleared of any wrongdoing by the French Rugby Federation which said corticosteroids were legally used under the Therapeutic Use Exemption rules to aid injury recovery.
