The second season of the Global T20 Canada has reached its climax, but the final phase of the tournament got dramatic when a match between Winnipeg Hawks and Toronto Nationals got exciting a rift in a high-scoring match.
After bad light stopped play in the 18th over, the result was declared through a DLS system. Hawks won the high-scoring thriller by 2 runs to see themselves in the Qualifier 2.
However, the match made headlines for the sensational catch taken by Nationals’ star all-rounder Kieron Pollard to dismiss the Hawks’ hard-hitting batsman, Chris Lynn.
Chasing 239 to win, Lynn smacked the last ball of the fourth over bowled by Chris Green straight in the long-on region. Pollard, who was fielding near the boundary, dived to his left and completed the stunning catch.
