During the morning session of the second Test, Wriddhiman Saha took a one-handed stunner behind the stumps. And later on, he was seen doing a juggling act to knock out Faf du Plessis’ of five off 54 deliveries in Pune on Sunday.
It was in the 24th over where Wriddhiman Saha juggled the ball multiple times before diving forward to complete the catch. Soon after accounting for South Africa’s captain, Ashwin foxed Dean Elgar into going for a big shot which went to Umesh Yadav at long-off.
Look here for the Juggling act of Saha:

Earlier in the day, Virat Kohli enforced the follow-on on South Africa, asking them to bat again after bowling them out for 275 in the first innings.
Ishant Sharma knocked out the South African Opener Aiden Markram, who bagged a pair in the match. Umesh Yadav soon got Theunis de Bruyn to nick one down the leg side as Wriddhiman Saha dived to his left to complete a stunning catch.
