A Hamilton cricket fan has become the second person to pocket $100,000 from a day out at the cricket after grabbing a one-handed catch in the crowd.

Jatindar Singh from Te Aroha caught the ball one-handed from Corey Anderson's bat in the 38th over of the second one-dayer between New Zealand and India, instantly earning a bumper pay day.

A promotion by Tui saw fans around the country flock to the cricket this summer wearing orange t-shirts, with the promise of $100,000 for any to take a one-handed grab.

Hamilton fan Michael Morton won $100,000 two weeks ago after making a catch in the final one-dayer between New Zealand and the West Indies.
