Wriddhiman Saha is undoubtedly the best wicket-keeper who has everything in his backpack to fill MS Dhoni’s shoes and we have seen his abilities in the last couple of months. However, during the first day of India vs Australia 3rd Test, we saw something as hilarious as ever that left us laughing our guts out.
The first day has been a very eventful one. From Jadeja’s magical catch to a successful DRS to Kohli’s shoulder injury, everything kept the visitors on their toes but what happened in the closing moments of the day might have given a moment to let go all that tension and let them leave with a memory that will make them laugh every time they would think of it.
Steven Smith (117*) and Glenn Maxwell (82*) were getting the better of Indian bowlers who seemed in control during the initial stages of the match. However, after a long day of coming up with new strategies for a breakthrough and an intense battle, Wriddhiman Saha turned saviour and gave everyone of the field and even in the stands a ROFL Moment.
Smith on the crease, Jadeja’s delivery, India looking for a wicket, Australia being very close to 300 with the loss of just 4 wickets and something unexpectedly hilarious happened.
See For Yourself:
This particular moment left Jadeja, Pujara and even the commentators having a nice laugh, but Steven Smith didn’t look to appreciate Wriddhiman Saha’s hands following the ball!! (pun)
