A cricket fan has won £26,400 after taking a stunning one-handed catch in the third One Day International between New Zealand and Pakistan in Dunedin.

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.

Guptil was so impressed with the catch that he applauded the spectator while out in the middle with Colin Munro.

Any fan at a New Zealand limited overs match this summer who catches a six one-handed while wearing a promotional T-shirt is rewarded with £26,400 (NZ$50,000) in prize money.

New Zealand Cricket had been subjected to criticism recently after some adults during a recent Twenty20 international against the West Indies were accused of “cannonballing into families with small children”.

That led to the introduction of ‘catch zones’ at most international cricket venues in New Zealand.

Hit play on the video above to watch the stunning one-handed crowd catch that netted one fan NZ$50,000.
