Glenn Philips fielding: Super-12 matches have started in T20 World Cup 2022. The first match is being played between Australia and New Zealand (AUS vs NZ) at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The final of the T20 World Cup was held between these two teams last year. Australia captain Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bowl first and his decision proved to be completely wrong. New Zealand set a target of 201 runs in front of him for victory.
Australia got off to a bad start. Opener David Warner was dismissed in the second over. Captain Aaron Finch and Mitchell Marsh also could not do a great job. After this, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis who landed on the pitch were also struggling. In the 9th over, Stoinis tried to open his hand. He played over cover on the second ball of the over against Mitchell Santner. The ball was far away from Glenn Philips fielding there.
Even after this, he jumped in the air while running to his right and caught the ball. Phillips ran 29 meters before taking the flying catch. There are still a lot of matches to be played in the tournament but this catch of Glenn Phillips has come to be called the Catch of the Tournament. Stoinis’s bat made only 7 runs in 14 balls.
