T20 World Cup: “Catch of the Tournament”- Glenn Philips’ “SuperMan” catch to dismiss Marcus Stoinis, NZ won by 89 runs vs AUS

T20 World Cup 2022: The first game of the “Super 12” stage between New Zealand and Australia is underway at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. The game is going towards New Zealand’s side and it is looking like the defending champions will face a loss in the opening games.

It started with the first innings, when New Zealand went on to score a massive score of 200/3 in their 20 overs. Star opener Devon Conway scored his seventh T20I half-century and remained unbeaten till the very end. He scored 92* off 58 balls, including seven fours and two sixes. Finn Allen also played a blistering knock of 42 off just 16 balls.

In the end, James Neesham hit two sixes to take New Zealand to the 200-run mark. He scored not out of 26, off 13 balls. However, in reply, Australia started poorly and lost David Warner (5) in the second over only. Mitchell Marsh (16) and skipper Aaron Finch (13) also couldn’t carry on for a long time.

However, an incredible moment came in the 9th over, when Mitchell Santner was bowling to Marcus Stonis. On the second ball of the over, Santner bowled a length ball, which Stoinis tried to hit for an inside-out six. But he didn’t connect it well, and the ball looped in the air. Glenn Philips, who ran towards the ball, grabbed an incredible diving catch.

That catch shocked everyone because it didn’t look like the fielder might reach for the ball. Even the commentators were shocked. It was certainly the “catch of the tournament” so far.

Speaking of the match, Australia got all out for 117 runs in 17.1 overs. New Zealand won their first match of T20 World Cup by a massive 89 runs. This will surely be a wake up call for the defending champions, because they will face other strong teams in their group and one more loss will surely kick them out of the T20 World Cup 2022.
