New Zealand cricketer Glenn Phillips who is currently playing for Gloucestershire took an absolutely brilliant catch in their recent match against Middlesex, at the T20 Vitality Blast 2021.
The incident occurred in the third over of the second innings when Middlesex was chasing a target of 172 runs. Opener Stephen Eskinazi tried to direct delivery by Matt Taylor to the boundary but Phillips had other plans.
The 24year-old Kiwi ran from the backward point and even had to dive in order to complete an absolute blinder that sent the Middlesex opener back to the pavilion with only 9 runs to his name.
The tournament's official Twitter handle shared the highlight and captioned it as, “WHAT A WORLDIE Glenn Phillips take a bow”.
