A New Zealand cricket fan has won $ 50,000 after taking a stunning one-handed catch in the 3rd one-day international between New Zealand and Pakistan at University Oval.
 
The match was played yesterday (Jan. 15).
 
Craig Dougherty, a 34-year-old builder from Dunedin was the first recipient of a cash prize of 2018 offered to spectators who could catch a six one-handed while wearing a promotional T-shirt in the designated areas.
 
The spectator casually lent down to take the catch after New Zealand opener Martin Guptill flicked Mohammad Amir over square leg and into the stands in the opening over of the match.
 
In this game, the home side made 257 before being bowled out.
 
Kane Williamson top scored with 73.
 
In reply, Pakistan was bowled out for 74 runs with Trent Boult bagging 5 for 17 and New Zealand won the game by 183 runs.
