Second Test between Australia and New Zealand: Glenn Phillips makes a jaw-dropping catch to dismiss Labuschagne on 90 | WATCH


<p>On the second day of the second New Zealand versus Australia Test at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on March 9 (Saturday), cricketer Glenn Phillips of New Zealand produced an incredible one-handed catch to remove Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne. With Labuschagne missing a century by 10 runs, the 27-year-old quickly switched to his right, giving the Kiwis a major breakthrough.</p>

<p>Tim Southee, the captain of New Zealand, attempted to direct a wide-length ball in the 61st over of the inning, but Labuschagne was unable to hold it down. Still, Phillips sprang to his right and dove headfirst into the air, making the grab with one hand. The catch was judged fair after the on-field umpire sent the call upstairs to verify the catch’s cleanliness.</p>
<p>The 29-year-old Labuschagne, who has recently struggled with form in Test cricket, amassed 90 runs off 147 balls—12 fours included—before being dismissed. After 60.2 overs, his dismissal left Australia at 221 for 8. Australia finished their first inning with 256 runs in 68 overs when Mitchell Starc was dismissed. Starc scored 28 runs, while Pat Cummins added 23.</p>

Australia had a commanding 94-run lead, and the pressure on the Kiwis increased. When Mitchell Starc got rid of Will Young for a cheap score, it was a big start. Yet, Tom Latham and Kane Williamson both made it through the difficult phase with impressive batting efforts. Together, they not only put up a respectable partnership of 100 runs, but Williamson also reached his fifty in the 36th over. Latham reached the mark as well, which helped their team bounce back.</p>
<p>But an over later, Pat Cummins forced an inside edge out of Williamson’s bat, and that was the game-changing moment. In the latter part of the innings, Starc persisted in giving Rachin Ravindra problems with his bat, but good fortune was on the batter’s side as he just missed making contact. Josh Hazlewood’s delivery presented another fortunate break for New Zealand, as Alex Carey was unable to cling onto a difficult opportunity. During lunch on the second day of the NZ versus AUS Test match, New Zealand had a 40-run lead at 134-2 in 50 overs. As the game goes on, this puts the test in jeopardy.</p>
