David Warner and D'Arcy Short set the ball rolling and their aggression set the sight easy for the middle order batsmen Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch. 18 wides, two no-balls, and free-hits tell its own tale.

Martin Guptill (62) and Colin Munro (57) led the Black Caps towards the target and a place in the final against Australia on Wednesday.

But fans must have bought one of the orange jerseys - and it must be worn while the catch is taken.

There were sensational scenes when Ross Taylor bashed a six just over the rope at deep square leg off a Andrew Tye delivery and Grimstone took a glorious catch after sticking his left hand over the fence.

A cricket fan on Friday won $50,000 after taking a stunning one-handed catch in the fifth Twenty20 match between New Zealand and Australia at Eden Park.

It was a competition run by the beer company TUI and required fans to buy and wear a promotional orange tee-shirt and they can stake claim to win a cash prize if they take a clean, one-handed catch. His reactions were priceless as he was mauled by friends who congratulated him after making the catch. I'm not left-handed but somehow it got in there and it stuck.

"It all happened in a blur, I saw it and I thought, "I have a chance here" and then popped out my hand", Grimstone said. Then everyone was just jumping all over me.

"It still hasn't sunk in really, it's all a blur and it's just fantastic, the whole Tui thing and how they've done it".
