Builder pockets $50000 for one-handed crowd catch during New Zealand ODI

Then, after Boult's near unplayable overs, Pakistan were all out for 74 in the 28th over to give New Zealand an unbeatable 3-0 lead in the five-match series.

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.

After posting 257 from 50 overs, the Black Caps skittled Pakistan for just 74 - their equal third-lowest total in ODIs and their worst-ever against New Zealand.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said the target now was to remain unbeaten.

A spectator won Rs 23 lakh on Saturday after taking a catch in the stands during the third ODI between New Zealand Pakistan.

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

On the first ball of the next over Williamson wanted to run two on a drive to deep point but Guptill was too slow to respond and was easily run out for 45.

Williamson never looked particularly fluent but reached 73 off 101 deliveries while Taylor made 52 off 64 deliveries. This match proved to be lucky not only for the team but also for New Zealand fans. "We wanted to get the series done", said man of the match Boult, who claimed figures of five for 17. Pakistan was only able to score just nine runs in the first ten overs for the loss of three wickets. Focus is to win each game.

With Pakistan's top order decimated following a fiery spell from Kiwi paceman Trent Boult, the Men in Green were facing the ignominy of recording the lowest ever one-day worldwide score as they teetered on a scarcely believable 32-7.

"It was a fantastic performance all round".

"Halfway break we knew, still 250 on the board, we knew it was going to be tough".
