Wriddhiman Saha had lost his place to Rishabh Pant after picking up an unfortunate injury. However, with Pant’s ordinary display in international cricket and Saha’s recovery, the Bengal based wicketkeeper was called back in the playing XI for the Test series against South Africa. Saha has been on a roll since then and his unbelievable catching has stunned everyone.

During the second Test match at Pune, he took stunning catches of Theunis de Bruyn and Proteas skipper Faf Du Plessis to contribute in India’s clinical win.

Impressed with his glove work, Umesh Yadav, the Indian pacer, has promised to take him for a lavish treat.

“I think I should treat him for those wickets down leg-side and that first catch, and I think they are Saha’s wickets. I thought they were going for boundaries, that’s always the thought when it’s down leg-side, but I was thanking God and Saha that I got those wickets,” Umesh said after the match.

Even Virat Kohli lauded the Indian wicketkeeper. “Mentioning Saha specially, he was a bit nervous coming into Vizag, but this game he kept beautifully,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.

Cricket Fanatics took to twitter to congratulate Saha.
