Hit a six into Zeta-Jones’ home for £100

London, Aug. 14 (PTI): An English village cricket club has challenged wannabe cricketers to hit a 150-yard shot into Catherine Zeta-Jones’ back garden and earn £100.

The first batsman to achieve the feat would also have to go and ask for the ball in order to collect the £100, insisted Mark Portsmouth, chairman of the Mumbles Cricket Club in Swansea, Wales, who put up the prize. “One big six could do it. It would have to be a massive hit but it is possible,” Portsmouth said, the Daily Mirror reported. According to Wisden, the biggest hit ever was 175 yards and was achieved in 1856.

The 33-year-old actress will use the house when visiting relatives in Swansea. Her windows are safe — she is having bullet-proof glass fitted to it.
