Wriddhiman Saha grabs fantastic one-handed low catch: The Indian wicket-keeper batsman was pretty athletic behind the wickets.
During the first day of the second Test of the ongoing Bangladesh’s tour of India in Kolkata, India wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha grabbed a fantastic one-handed low catch to dismiss Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah.
It all had happened on the fourth delivery of the 20th over when Mahmudullah edged an Ishant Sharma delivery behind the stumps. With the ball going in between Saha and India captain Virat Kohli at first slip, Saha took the onus on himself to give to his right and catch the ball just inches about the ground whilst in the air.
Coming in to bat at No. 6 in the 12th over, Mahmudullah scored 6 (21) with the help of a four to be part of a dismal batting performance from the visitors in the first session after their captain Mominul Haque won the toss and chose to bat.
Sharma, who opened the bowling with Umesh Yadav, dismissed the second batsman for the day after sending back Bangladesh opening batsman Imrul Kayes (4) in the seventh over.
While Yadav dismissed three batsmen in the seven overs that he bowled, Mohammed Shami was also among the wickets in the first session. Bangladesh are reeling at 73/6 in 21.4 overs at lunch on Day 1.

No matter the colour of the ball, or the movement on offer, Wriddhiman Saha’s wicketkeeping is a legit thing of beauty.

Wriddhiman? More like Superman!
The Indian keeper takes a brilliant catch to dismiss Mahmudullah. Ishant gets the wicket but that was all Saha. The ball was dying on him but he got across in a flash.

Wriddhi-Superman Saha! 😍
Ishant finds the edge, Mahmudullah has to walk back.
