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. Pakistan's last win against New Zealand came in Sharjah in December 2014. During the match, a man sitting in the viewer's gallery became rich in a moment.

Check out the brilliant catch in the video player above. At one point in the match, Pakistan were reeling at 17/7.

Pakistan is now on a tour of New Zealand.

The fourth ODI will be played on Tuesday while the series concludes in Wellington on 19 January. He took 81 balls to reach his 33rd half-century in one-day internationals and went on to top-score with 73, providing the backbone of the New Zealand middle order. The Kiwi team scored 257 runs in 50 overs.

Although Pakistan gave a stiff fight in the second through Hasan Ali's maiden fifty and Mohammad Hafeez's early start as well, the rains reduced the overs to 25 overs revising the target to 155.

Fortunately, Pakistan avoided that humiliation as they stumbled on to a measly score of 74 but their capitulation and 183-run defeat see them 3-0 down in a forgettable series for the visitors.

There was another competition going on in the field during the match among the audience.

That led to the introduction of "catch zones" at most global cricket venues in New Zealand.

But Munro was out for 8 in the second over, slashing across the line at a ball from Faheem Ashraf and delivering a skied catch to Pakistan wicketkeeper and captain Sarfraz Ahmed. There is also a condition that it was also necessary to wear promotional T-shirts for prize money.
