Fan takes $50000 catch as Kiwis roll Pakistan

Fan takes $50000 catch as Kiwis roll Pakistan

New Zealand cricket has set up special zones where fans wearing Tui Breweries promotional T-shirts can win cash for one-handed catches.

Chasing 258 to win, Trent Boult speared through Pakistan's top order, starting with the dismissal of Azhar Ali, who was caught by Taylor at first slip for a duck. The first match in Wellington, which New Zealand won by 61 runs, was also affected by the weather and further rain is forecast for game three in Dunedin on Saturday. The Kiwis were quick and aggressive on the field as Pakistan made a meagre score of 74 runs. They barely managed to avoid the lowest ODI total in New Zealand - 73 - by the home team against Sri Lanka in 2006-07.

New Zealand won with the game by 183 runs after dismissing the visitors for a dismal 74 runs, taking a 3-0 lead in the series. Guys were smart today.

Boult was awarded man of the match honours, finishing the innings with 5/17 off 7.2 overs.

It was a awful showing by Pakistan after giving themselves hope of victory, only for yet another top-order collapse to take away their chances.

Taylor fell in that manner to Shadab, beaten by a short ball which failed to bounce, beat his shot and hit him in front of middle stump.

"I think the problem is the first new ball. we will not give so many wickets in the first 10 overs", Sarfraz said.

Williamson, who came to the crease on Munro's departure, took a long time to settle and find the pace of the pitch, but applied himself to go on to a half-century.

It was Pakistan's lowest total against New Zealand and the hosts' winning margin eclipsed the previous best of 138 runs when the two sides met in 2001 in Christchurch.
