Chris Jordan adds another superb catch to his collection
New Zealand had the last laugh by beating England by 12 runs in Wellington.
England may have been beaten by New Zealand in their latest T20 match, but Chris Jordan produced a moment of magic during the Kiwis’ innings.
Jordan is making a name for himself as one of the finest fielders in England, and he enhanced that reputation with a superb one-handed catch to dismiss Colin de Grandhomme.
WOW! Jordan takes one-handed stunner on the boundary to dismiss De Grandhomme first ball, two wickets in two balls for Rashid with Guptill (65 off 40) also out.

The New Zealander was keen to get off to a fast start and launched his first delivery in the 14th over from Adil Rashid for what he thought would be a six.
But he had not counted on the agility of Jordan fielding at long-off to produce a stunning catch.
The Sussex all-rounder caught the ball in mid-air about a metre from the rope but his momentum was taking him towards the boundary.
When landing, his right foot was inches away from the rope but Jordan somehow managed to stay within the field of play and send de Grandhomme back to the pavillion.
New Zealand went on to beat England by 12 runs.
