While representing Trent Rockets against Manchester Originals at the Old Trafford in Manchester, Glenn showed amazing athleticism to send the opponent’s opener Lizelle Lee back to the hut. On the 24th ball of the innings of Manchester Originals, Lizelle tried to hit Kathryn Bryce over mid-off fielder but Glenn ran behind and timed her jump to perfection to complete the catch. She took the catch and dived beautifully to make sure the catch is taken cleanly.
