Wriddhiman Saha has done it again. For the second successive day, the Indian wicketkeeper showed his brilliant glovework behind the wicket by taking stunning catches.

India, leading by 326 runs, enforced follow on the Proteas, and soon they got into the business. Ishant Sharma trapped Aiden Markram in front with the second ball of the innings, then Umesh Yadav induced a fine nick off de Bruyn who tried to play down the leg side.

But there, a flying Saha took one of the greatest catches by a wicketkeeper, diving to his left and completing a clean catch. His effort left every member of the Indian camp proud. That happened off the fourth ball of the 6th over.

Relive the moment here: 

Saha then pulled off another stunner to send Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis. This one a juggling catch, in the fourth attempt to give Ravichandran Ashwin his first scalp of the innings. That happened off the third ball off the 24th over.

Then, South Africa were 70/3, trailing India by 256 runs.

Talking about Saha's brilliance, according to Cricviz, a cricket analysis website, the 34-year-old collects 96.9% of the deliveries, which is best in the world now, beating Sri Lankan Niroshan Dickwella (95.5%).
