Things are looking interesting at the M Chinnaswamy stadium at Bengaluru as both India and Australia now has a fair chance of sealing the Test match. With the dismissal of Australian wicket keeper Mathew Wade, India got the grip of the match.

Wade went out for a duck of a Ravichandran Ashwin delivery as Bengal wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha completed a superb catch. The left-handed Australian tried to defend the delivery on the front foot but failed to middle it. As a result, the ball went high up in the air and Wriddhiman Saha took an absolute stunner stretching himself to the full.

The wicket came at an important time for the Indians as almost all of Australia’s recognised batsmen have been dismissed. The celebration of the Indian players tells the story that how important the wicket was for the Indians. The Indian skipper Virat Kohli looked overjoyed as he ran across the field to congratulate Saha who played a huge part in the dismissal.

There has never been any doubt about Saha’s abilities as he without any doubt is one of India’s most flexible and athletic keepers. But it is unfortunate that he has mostly been out of the playing eleven as Mahendra Singh Dhoni fulfilled the wicket keeping duties for India. But now when he has got the opportunity to showcase his talent to the cricket fraternity he is utilizing it to the full.
