Pune: Wriddhiman Saha won massive praise from the entire cricket fraternity after he grabbed a sensational one-handed catch towards his right to dismiss Australia’s lower-order batsman Steve O’Keefe.
The incident happened in the 82nd over of the innings. Umesh bowled a quick wide delivery to O’Keefe, who was beaten for pace and he nicked it between first slip and the keeper.
The ball was far away from Saha, who flew towards his right to grab one of the best catches you will ever see on a cricket field. After Day 1, Umesh lauded Saha’s effort and said such catches motivate the bowlers to enhance their performance.
Time and again, Indian think tank has backed Saha as India’s best wicketkeeper at the moment and that catch will silence those who have questioned his abilities in the past.
