IND Vs SA, 2nd Test
Wriddhiman Saha has done it again. For the second successive day, the Indian wicketkeeper showed his brilliant glovework behind the wicket by taking stunning catches. On Day 3 of the second Test against South Africa at Pune, Saha grabbed an unreal catch to dismiss Theunis de Bruyn, whom he made his own victim on Day 2.
India, leading by 326 runs, enforced follow on the Proteas, and soon they got into the business. Ishant Sharma trapped Aiden Markram in front with the second ball of the innings, then Umesh Yadav induced a fine nick off de Bruyn who tried to play down leg side.
But there, a flying Saha took one of the greatest catches by a wicketkeeper, diving to his left and completing a clean catch. His effort left every member of the Indian camp proud. That happened off the fourth ball of the 6th over.

Saha then pulled off another stunner to send Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis. This one a juggling catch, in the fourth attempt to give Ravichandran Ashwin his first scalp of the innings. That happened off the third ball off the 24th over.
Then, South Africa were 70/3, trailing India by 256 runs.
Talking about Saha's brilliance, the 34-year-old collects 96.9% of the deliveries, which is best in the world now, beating Sri Lankan Niroshan Dickwella (95.5%).Related Articles:-
