A Cricket spectator named Andrew McCulloch has won $5000 after catching an excellent shot landed off a right-armed breaking hit in a local county match between the Otago Volts and the Wellington Firebirds. It was an excellent shot played by the batsman Bracewell.
Bracewell is from the New Zealand cricket team, and has proved to be a good all-rounder. The shot was very nice to watch actually, as the batsmen played the shot very gently and without any difficulties.
Not coming down the track, the batsman stayed at the crease and waited for the ball to come to his bat, hitting it at the centre of the bat. As the momentum at which batsman hit the ball was great, the ball started going up and up, covering the maximum distance there.
Though the ball turned and bounced, the batsman made full use of the turn and the height to convert it to the big hit. And watching the ball very carefully, a spectator from the crowd ran forward towards the ball and made the amazing catch one-handed. Reifler was amazed when he saw the video online.
It was Andrew McCulloch who made the lucky catch. First, Andrew started walking towards the ball, but after that he felt the ball moving around towards his right. Observing it, he just put his right arm to the ball, and the next moment the ball was in his hands.
