A 34-year-old cricket fan Craig Dougherty became the first to take a $50K catch this home summer when he caught a smashing six from Martin Guptill in the opening over of the ODI between the Black Caps and Pakistan at Dunedin's University Oval.

Craig Dougherty, a builder from Dunedin, said he had barely sat down before he saw the ball flying straight towards him.
"I had no time to think about it, I just stuck my arm out."

It was a clean catch without any grappling from fellow fans. "It was literally just me with my arm out, the guys next to me had their hands in their pockets."

It was originally a scramble for a Tui shirt, he couldn't find one the night before and only just managed to buy one 10 minutes before the game started.
