On Saturday, 13th August during the third Test between India and England, cricketer Praveen Kumar hit a 6 which landed spectacularly in spectator Jeremy Cornwall’s pint of Pedigree!
Jeremy is now something of a local celebrity following the distribution of a slow motion video of the ‘lucky’ ball landing in his pint and the resulting social media frenzy during the test match. After seeing Jeremy’s pint spill everywhere on Saturday, Marston’s did the right thing - delivered him a fresh pint at his workplace.
Jeremy is revelling in his fifteen minutes of fame and to congratulate him, Marston’s have rewarded him with a mini cask of Pedigree.
Des Gallagher, Marketing Manager for Marston’s Beer Company says: "It’s a rare occurrence for someone to hit a 6 in a match, never mind someone catching the ball in a pint of Pedigree! It’s only fitting that we deliver Jeremy a perfect pint to make up for the spillage and reward his lucky catch. The catch certainly caused a stir and once again Pedigree was in the headlines as the official beer of the England cricket team."
