Glenn Phillips, the New Zealand batsman, pulled off a screamer on Friday during a T20 Blast game while fielding at the deep point position. He is plying his trade for Gloucestershire in the ongoing tournament.
During a game against Middlesex in Cheltenham, Glenn Phillips got rid of opener Stephen Eskinazi with a stunning catch. The official handle of the Blast uploaded the video.
Eskinazi scooped a full ball outside off to a deep point, where Glenn Phillips, came out flying out-of-nowhere in the video to grab the ball, parallel to the ground, apparently one-handed.

Watch: Harleen Deol takes a stunning catch at the boundary line
Hours after Glenn Phillips’ fantastic catch, India‘s Harleen Deol caught the attention of the world as she produced an all-time great catch during the first T20I between India and England in Northampton.
The 23-year-old from Chandigarh sent England batter Amy Jones with an incredible take at the boundary line. Jone skipped down a couple of steps in order to launch Pandey over wide long-off where Harleen was positioned.
The ball seemed to sail over the fielder for a maximum – but was stopped in its way by the fielder. With a little jump in the air, the youngster first reverse-cupped the ball above her head. Realizing that her body was about to fall over the boundary line, she threw it back in the air and then went over the rope.
A few steps behind the boundary line, Harleen Deol observed the airborne ball; she pulled herself off the ground, diving inside the playing area to grab the ball again with her body almost horizontal in the wind.
