Glenn Phillips grabs spectacular one-handed stunner: The Tallawahs wicket-keeper put on display an incredible fielding effort last night.

During the seventh match of the seventh season of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League between St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and Jamaica Tallawahs in St Kitts, Jamaica Tallawahs wicket-keeper Glenn Phillips put on display an incredible fielding effort to dismiss his counterpart in Devon Thomas.

It all happened on the first delivery of the 14th over when Thomas’ outside edged an Oshane Thomas delivery behind the wickets. It was in an attempt to up the ante that Thomas aimed to go over extra cover.

Phillips, who initially moved towards his left, timed his jump to perfection to eventually catch the ball one-hand whilst in the air. With the hosts running away in the 242-run chase, it was crucial for Jamaica to take a wicket.

Thomas, who opened the batting with Evin Lewis (53), walked back to the pavilion after scoring his third T20 half-century. An exceptional batting effort saw the 29-year old wicket-keeper batsman scoring 71 (40) with the help of eight fours and three sixes.

It was a brisk 50-run stand for the sixth wicket between Fabian Allen (37*) and Shamarh Brooks (27) which saw St Kitts registering victory in the penultimate over.

After St Kitts captain Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and chose to field, the visiting team posted a formidable 241/4 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Veteran West Indies batsman Chris Gayle scored a record 22nd T20 century in the first innings. Before getting out in the last over, Gayle had scored 116 (62) with the help of seven fours and 10 sixes.
