$100k for plucking a ball from the sky

$100k for plucking a ball from the sky
Catching a SIX has never been so rewarding

Today, lucky Hamiltonian Michael Morton won the opportunity of a lifetime by catching a well-struck six at the fifth one day international cricket match between New Zealand and the West Indies to win $100,000 cold hard cash thanks to The Tui Brewery.

Sitting mid-wicket at Seddon Park, it was a bankable seat in the stadium for Micahel Morton who caught a piece of the action, and in doing so walked away from the game a winner.

Although enticed along to the match by the cricket action, cricket enthusiast Michael was secretly hoping to catch a six, and a share of the 1.2 million dollars, which the Tui Brewery has offered up for bounty this summer of cricket.
Commenting on winning $100k at the BLACKCAPS, Michael said he could not believe his luck when the ball sailed towards him and he managed to catch it cleanly.

“I’m still in shock and overwhelmed with what’s just happened. I was just in the supermarket with my wife this morning and kept dropping groceries all over the shop, so luckily my form improved. I’ve already had guys dropping business cards in my pocket and real estate agents approaching me!”

“A huge thanks to Tui, I really hope someone else gets to win this amazing amount of cash,” said Michael.

Indebted to Kieran Powell for hitting a six in his direction, Michael said, “I’m a big BLACKCAPS fan and I always come to support the team at Hamilton games.”

So what can Michael do with his newly found fortune? He hasn’t made any decisions just yet, but he could book 14 first class return trips to London, buy 95 iPhone5S devices or 1000 BLACKCAPS replica shirts.

There are seven opportunities left to win a share of a million dollars in January. To ensure you are in to win, head towww.tui.co.nz, purchase a Tui cricket t-shirt, get along to one of the T20 or ODI games and then it’s all up to you. Choose your hot seat and bring your catching skills for the chance to win big.
