Washington Freedom put 133/8 on board after being invited to bat first by the San Francisco Unicorns. But as soon as Unicorns took the field to chase the score of 134, the Aaron Finch-led side were handed the first blow in the third over of the inning. On the second delivery of the third over, Glenn Phillips pulled off a brilliant catch to dismiss opener Finn Allen. Allen sliced the ball behind square and with area looking like a no-man’s land, Glenn Phillips came backwards running to jump and complete a Superman-like catch.

The New Zealand all-rounder covered a distance from cover point to square to complete a stunner to dismiss his countryman Finn Allen back to pavilion at the score of 13.

Chaitanya Bishnoi pulls off a direct hit

In the first inning with Washington Freedom reeling at 28/1 after four overs, Chaitanya Bishnoi of Unicorns pulled off a brilliant direct hit to send Matthew Short. In what looked a brainfade moment for Short, the Aussie nipped a fuller length and started running not knowing where the ball landed.

Till the time Short could reach the crease, Bishnoi collected the ball well in time and aimed at the non-strikers end, inflicting a brilliant run-out, sending Short at the score of 5 off 10 deliveries.
