During the fourth day of the second Test of ongoing India vs South Africa in Pune, India’s wicket-keeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha took a stunner and justified his selection. He replaced Rishabh Pant in the Test.
It all happened on the third delivery of the 24th over when Faf du Plessis got an inside-edge from a delivery off experienced spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. However, the ball hit and went for a catch which Wriddhiman Saha took it with a juggle. Saha kept his eyes on the ball and took it on the third attempt while diving towards the right of the batsman.
Faf du Plessis, who walked in to bat at No. 4 before Temba Bavuma, wasn’t successful to score big. He ended up scoring 5 off 54 in a situation which demanded a quick inning from him. However, that was Saha’s third stunning catch of this match. While he took a one-handed stunner to dismiss Theunis de Bruyn in the morning, he had taken a similar catch to dismiss de Bruyn yesterday too.
With the bowling figures of 28.4-9-69-4, Ashwin was the successful bowlers among all in the first innings. Having dismissed two batsmen since morning, the experienced spinner is back with form.
