New Zealand cricketer Glenn Phillips pulled off a spectacular catch during Gloucestershire’s match against Middlesex, at the T20 Vitality Blast 2021. The event occurred in the third over of the second innings when Middlesex were chasing a target of 172 runs. Opener Stephen Eskinazi tried to direct a delivery by Matt Taylor to the boundary but Phillips had other plans.

The tournament’s official Twitter handle shared the highlight and captioned it as, “WHAT A WORLDIE Glenn Phillips take a bow”.
