WATCH: Wriddhiman Saha takes a flying catch to dismiss Mahmudullah Riyad during the Day-Night Test

Posted On / /

On Day 1 of the historic Day-Night between India and Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, India wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha took a one-handed stunner to dismiss Bangladesh batsman Mahmudullah Riyad.

It happened on the fourth delivery of the 20th over when Mahmudullah edged an Ishant Sharma delivery behind the stumps. With the ball moving in between Saha and India skipper Virat Kohli at first slip, the former took the onus on himself to go to his right and grab the ball just inches about the ground while in the air.

Coming in to bat at No. 6 in the 12th over, Mahmudullah scored just six runs off 21 balls with the help of a boundary.

Relive the moment here:

It was a great day for the hosts as they first restricted Bangladesh to 106 runs in the first innings and then scored 174/3 at stumps, taking a lead of 68 runs.
