Wriddhiman Saha took yet another spectacular low-catch to get rid of South Africa's skipper Faf Du Plessis on Day four of the second Test in Pune on Sunday. Earlier in the day, Wriddhiman Saha had taken a screamer behind the stumps, as he dove to his left to grab a one-hander to get rid of de Bruyn for a second time in this match. Wriddhiman Saha managed to juggle and hold on to a low delivery that was edged by Faf DuPlessis off Ravichandran Ashwin's delivery. Wriddhiman Saha juggled four times with the delivery before managing to hold on to it. With this catch, Wriddhiman Saha has completed three jaw-dropping catches in this match and is now definitely in the contention for donning the gloves for India in the longer format of the game. Netizens hailed Wriddhiman Saha's keeping skills and said that he had indeed repaid the faith of the selectors and skipper Virat Kohli, who provided him with an opportunity after replacing Rishabh Pant in the longer format of the game.

Wriddhiman Saha gets de Bruyn twice in two innings

Wriddhiman Saha took yet another screamer behind the stumps to get rid of South Africa's Theunis de Bruyn for the second consecutive time in this match on Day four, in the same manner. Earlier in the first innings, Wriddhiman Saha dived to his right to grab a blinder to dismiss de Bruyn. In a very similar fashion, the Test wicketkeeper dived to his left this time in the second innings to grab a one-handed catch that sent de Bruyn packing. Umesh Yadav picked up his first wicket in the second innings as de Bruyn edged the ball down the leg side to Wriddhiman Saha who held on to the catch. Having bowled out South  Africa for 275 runs on Day three, India enforced the follow-on as play commenced on Day four and succeded in getting two breakthroughs with wickets from Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav.
