Blog: Olly WehringHeineken gets Foster's profile boost with a catch

Olly Wehring | 6 September 2016

Here in the UK, we're coming to the end of a fine summer of cricket, with England having played against Sri Lanka and Pakistan in a number of matches around the country.

The best was saved 'til last for Heineken, whose Foster's brand is the official lager of England cricket. In Cardiff, on Sunday, this happened.

As a result of his heroics, Mateen Sharif, 27 from Birmingham, has won an all-expenses paid trip for two to Australia, from Foster's. He was also wearing a Foster's T-shirt... and sitting in the Foster's Grandstand.

Despite the perfect serendipity, I've been assured that Mateen does not work for Heineken.
