Glenn Phillips sends Keegan Petersen back after flying to his left to take a screaming

<p>Although Glenn Phillips is known for his exceptional fielding skills, he may have shocked even himself on the third day of the current second Test between South Africa and New Zealand. David Bedingham and Keegan Petersen were developing a strong partnership, and the hosts were in danger as they looked poised to extend their advantage after adding 98 runs for the fifth wicket.</p>

<p>However, Keegan Petersen cut the back of a length ball violently in the 60th over of the game, which Matt Henry was bowling, and didn’t attempt to hold it down. However, Phillips completed a screamer at gully when he shot quickly to his left, like a goalie, and caught the ball by himself. The effort was so great that Henry was ecstatic that New Zealand had finally broken the partnership that was threatening to steal the game away from them, and Phillips hailed it with a yell.</p>
<p>The outstanding catch also set off a chain reaction that saw South Africa lose their last six wickets for 33 runs, falling from 202/4 to 235 all out. The hosts were given a target of 267 runs to win the second Test and complete the series 2-0 after taking a 31-run advantage in the first innings. It is the highest goal set in the fourth innings at Seddon Park in Hamilton, so it won’t be simple for New Zealand. The Kiwis finished the day at 40/1, needing 227 more runs to win, having lost Devon Conway at the stroke of stumping.</p>
<p>The Proteas, who chose to bat first, made a valiant effort earlier in the game, scoring 242 runs in their first innings. After that, Dane Piedt shocked the home side by taking five wickets, eking out a vital 31-run advantage, and dismissing them for 211 runs. The Test match is now in an intriguing balance, but in order for the visitors to win, they will require wickets in the first hour of the fourth morning.</p>
