The 'magical' catch that made a spectator win reward worth Lakhs

Ben Stokes bats

Dougherty could barely concentrate on the rest of the game as he was inundated with messages from friends who had seen his triumphant catch on TV.

A cricket fan Saturday won $50,000 after taking a stunning one-handed catch in the third one-day worldwide between New Zealand and Pakistan at University Oval.

Chasing 258, Pakistan got rolled for 74, their equal third lowest score of all time in one day global cricket.

After the Kiwis set a competitive 258 total, Pakistan crumbled from the outset reduced to 6/16 before rallying and falling for 74.

Boult bowled magnificently to prevent any chance of Pakistan challenging New Zealand's 257, which had earlier seemed precarious in batting conditions which were challenging but not impossible.

Don't be surprised if Pakistan make a bunch of changes to their playing XI for Tuesday's fourth ODI against New Zealand.

Dangerman Fakhar Zaman was bowled for two and Taylor also caught Mohammad Hafeez for a duck in Boult second over and Pakistan were in a hole they were never going to get out of.

Tight bowling and a slow outfield restricted New Zealand to 37 for one after 10 overs and the pressure started to show by the 20th over as the run rate remained around four an over.

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

Babar Azam (8), Shoaib Malik (3) and Shadab Khan (0) went in quick succession to leave Pakistan at 16-6.

Boult was named Man of the Match, and said: "Pretty windy today, the wind was behind me today". "I think everyone did their job in terms of the bowling performance and the most important performances were the ones from the far end". At one point in the match, Pakistan were reeling at 17/7.

Taylor was able to score more freely, perhaps because conditions favored the straight-bat shots which are his forte, and reached his 40th ODI half century from 49 balls.

Despite NZ losing 7-48 to close their innings, the total looked a competitive one on the Dunedin wicket.
