There have been some world-class fielders over the years in the game of cricket. They have been entertaining the fans with their performances on the pitch. Over the years, the game has been graced by their performances. Another such special talent was recently spotted by the fans recently. A video of Glenn Phillips brought the fans a great new fielder in the making.
New Zealand won the second T20 game to win the series 2-0. However, it was still a better fight from the visitors. The game was a reduced match, with 171 the final target for the Asian side. They could only manage to score 142/7 in the 16 overs, which the game was reduced to.
It was a shorter game in this short format of cricket. Despite that, it was really fun to watch and the fans enjoyed what they saw. Though some of them would have wanted more of a fight from the visitors, the hosts were always the favourites to win the match and the series.
The Video Of Glenn Phillips Making A Great Attempt To Take A Catch That Went Viral
It was a great fielding attempt in the way that Glenn Phillips took flight and tried to hold on to the ball. He was not able to gather it. If he did, it would have been a brilliant catch. Even some of the former players, who were great fielders would have been proud of that attempt.
Below is the video of the superb attempt by Glenn Phillips to take a diving catch but unfortunately couldn’t hold on to the ball-

Some of the fans on Social Media were wondering why Glenn Phillips is not part of any IPL franchise. The IPL teams want more such brilliant fielders who can produce such brilliance. The Indian Premier League is known to have the best players. Another star like Glenn Phillips would definitely add fire to it.
What Next For The Teams With The T20 World Cup Coming Up?
Glenn Phillips was adjudged the Man Of The Match for his overall performance in the game. He scored 58 runs and took a wicket as well. His overall contribution helped the Kiwis win the match. They were once again dominant against Bangladesh, who did not have the best of matches once again, though they tried to fight for something out of the game.
Despite that, it was a good game of cricket with some brilliant moments. Unfortunately, it was Bangladesh that was on the wrong side of the result yet again. They need to play better cricket if they want to do something in the upcoming international tournament.
On the other hand, Glenn Phillips could be a great prospect for the future. He seems like one of those players who can really make an impact. It will be interesting to see how things develop now for him. So far, he has been really impressive and if he continues to play like this, the world will surely notice him. He could be heading for the IPL very soon!!
