IND against NZ | Twitter reacts to Glenn Philips saving a race by kicking the ball from 30 yards

Cricketers using their ‘football skills’ to warm up or go out is nothing new, but Glenn Philips showed something new today in Kolkata. The Kiwi, lined up on the ropes, not only managed to save a limit, but also managed to save a run by hitting the ball nearly 30 yards.

After winning the draw in the third T20I, India opted to hit New Zealand first on Sunday in Kolkata, and Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan started well for the hosts. Three overs at the hosts scored 29 points with no wicket loss and India appeared on track.

It was during the fourth round that Philips decided to put some effort into the field. The Indian captain threw a full length delivery to the limit and the ball looked like it was destined to cross the fence. However, Glenn Philips, who was fielding a deep square leg, quickly covered the ground and dove down to keep the ball in play. However, the momentum of the ball seemed to win over the line. The Kiwi made sure his efforts weren’t going to be undone as he managed to push the ball back and bring the ball back into a 30-yard circle to save a run for his team.

What a huge saving by Philips

Crisp and clean

Put the body on the line

Seriously underestimated

Pretty smooth from Philips


Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma’s performances are top notch

Every time Rohit hits the ball

Well said
