Theunis de Bruyn, Wriddhiman Saha

IND vs SA 2nd Test: WATCH – Wriddhiman Saha takes a superb flying catch to remove Theunis de Bruyn

Many questioned Wriddhiman Saha’s selection ahead of Rishabh Pant in the playing XIs of both the Tests against South Africa. But, India captain Kohli said that it was Saha’s keeping skills that helped him get the place.


On the fourth day of the second Test between India and South Africa in Pune, Saha proved his skipper right by grabbing a miraculous one-handed diving catch to dismiss Theunis de Bruyn.

It happened on the fourth ball of the sixth over during South Africa’s second innings. Umesh Yadav bowled a half-tracker around de Bruyn’s hips, which the batsman nudged fine in the hope of getting a secure boundary.


However, what followed next left de Bruyn in shock, as to his dismay, Saha took off, flew to his left and grabbed the ball out of thin air with his left hand. Knowing the absurdity of the catch, the Indian players instantly mobbed Saha, and Kohli even gave the keeper a cheeky kiss on his head.

Meanwhile, what poor de Bruyn all could do was stand there in disbelief and stroll back to the pavilion in shock.

After winning the Pune Test by an innings and 137 runs, India is now 2-0 up in the three-match series against South Africa as they won the first Test in Vizag by 203 runs.
