Sri Lanka locked horns with New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground in the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2022 on Saturday. While cramps are not something to laugh at, Glenn Phillips became the latest victim of excruciating cramps during the game and he was seen dancing about in a comical fashion.

New Zealand has all but secured its spot in the semi-final with a dominant win over Sri Lanka by 65 runs. The Kiwis were in deep trouble at the start of the match when they were reeling at 15/3 but a spirited century from Glenn Phillips almost singlehandedly took them to a commanding total of 167 which proved to be a few too many for the Lions.

Glenn Phillips played a match-winning knock of 104 runs took 64 balls to get and lasted an excruciating 17 and a half overs of the match. During the chase, Sri Lanka was reeling at 70/8 in the 14th over when Lahiru Kumara flicked a ball off Lockie Ferguson calling deep square-leg fielder Phillips into action. The batter sprinted toward the ball and even though he managed to restrict the runs to just a couple, had to pay a painful price for it.

As soon as he threw the ball, Glenn Phillips suffered a cramp on his hamstrings and he immediately assumed a yoga position with his hand stretched towards the floor and knees straight, visibly trying to deal with severe pain. However, things went from bad to worse just at that moment as the quad muscles decided to cramp up at the same time, forcing him into an involuntary hop.

At the end of the excruciating pain, Glenn Phillips was seen just balancing on one leg as he tried to make his muscle stretch, seemingly no longer in control of his own body. Despite the imaginable pain, he immediately decided to carry on and returned to the fielding mark, thus allowing spectators the liberty to both laugh and marvel at the scenes they had just witnessed.
