Another Catch a Million hopeful takes Wahab Riaz six in Napier


A cricket fan in Napier is the latest to be in the running to split a potential $1 million jackpot in the Tui Catch a Million competition.

The green wig, Tui T-shirt wearing fan snaffled a big six from Pakistan’s Wahab Riaz in the World Cup clash against the United Arab Emirates at McLean Park.

The clean one-handed catch puts the fan in the mix to share in up to $1 million if the Black Caps win the Cricket World Cup final.

It wasn’t the only one-handed catch with another fan claiming a clean catch off a six hit by Pakistan’s Umar Akmal. However, despite holding on to two drinks in his other hand, the fan was not wearing an orange T-shirt and didn’t qualify for the cash.
