If there is little bit chance to convert a catch, we know Wriddhiman Saha will take it: Umesh Yadav

first_imgWriddhiman Saha once again justified his selection in the Test team ahead of Rishabh Pant and repaid the Indian team management’s faith by taking a few brilliant catches in the Pune Test, which the hosts won by an innings and 137 runs on Sunday.Saha took three catches in South Africa’s second innings and all three were lauded by the commentators, fans and his teammates alike.Saha let nothing go past him on a difficult pitch in Pune with his catch down the leg-side to get rid of Theunis de Bruyn off Umesh Yadav’s bowling drawing the maximum praise.Saha, rated as one of the best wicketkeepers in the world, flew to his left to grab the ball as the tourists slumped to 21/2 after being asked to follow-on.Another one of Umesh’s wickets – Vernon Philander – came down the leg side, courtesy a sharp catch by Saha, who will turn 35 on October 24.”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.India captain Virat Kohli also singled out praise for the Bengal wicketkeeper for his performance with the gloves in this Test match.”Mentioning Saha specially, he was a bit nervous coming into Vizag, but this game he kept beautifully,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.advertisementIndia bundled the South Africans out for 189 on the penultimate day to set the new record for most series wins (11) at home in Test cricket.The Proteas were earlier bowled out for 275 just before stumps on Day 3 in their first innings in reply to India’s 601 for 5 declared, and were asked to bat again by Virat Kohli with the hosts taking a 326-run first-innings lead.This win was India’s biggest innings win over South Africa in Test cricket, beating their previous best of an innings and 57-run victory at the Eden Gardens in 2010. Overall, this was India’s 10th biggest innings win in Tests.Also Read | Watch: Wriddhiman ‘Superman’ Saha takes stunning catch to send back de BruynAlso Read | Pune Test: India 1st team in 11 years to enforce follow-on vs South AfricaAlso Read | Pune Test: Virat Kohli masterclass cornerstone of India’s crushing win vs SAlast_img read more
