Black Caps fan wins $50,000 with Catch-a-Million screamer

One lucky Black Caps fan has won $50,000 after catching a six one handed in the third One Day International between New Zealand in Pakistan.

In just the first over of the match, batsman Martin Guptill hit a six, picking the ball up off his pad to send it into the crowd.

The ball sailed over the rope, and perfectly into the hand of fan Craig Dougherty, taking part in the "Catch-a-Million" contest, earning himself a cool $50,000 for his troubles.

"It hasn't really sunk in yet, I still can't believe I caught it, but it's awesome that I did catch it," he told Sky afterwards.

The contest applies to those in the designated catch zones, wearing the sponsor's t-shirt and lanyard, who can take a clean one handed catch during the Black Caps' limited overs matches.
