VIDEO: Leaped in the air like a bird, caught the ball before coming down, eyes will be wide open after seeing Phillips’ catch

New Delhi. The second Test is being played between New Zealand and South Africa in Hamilton. On Thursday, on the third day of this Test, New Zealand all-rounder Glenn Phillips took an amazing catch of South African batsman Keegan Pietersen. Due to this mid-air catch by Phillips, the 98-run partnership between Pietersen and David Bedingham for the fifth wicket ended.

This brilliant catch came during the 60th over of South Africa’s second innings. Kiwi fast bowler Matt Henry bowled a length ball outside the off stump. Keegan Pietersen cuts this ball. But, he could not keep the ball down. The ball went at rocket speed straight towards Glenn Phipps who was fielding in the lane. Within a few moments, Phillips jumped into the air like a goalkeeper and made the catch with one hand. Phillips had taken a similar mid-air catch of Fortuin in the first innings also. He has taken 4 catches in the match so far.
