Indian wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha has taken some stunning catches in the ongoing India-Australia series.
There was that stunning one-handed effort in the first Test in Pune.
And then there was the full-length diving catch in Bengaluru.
And on Thursday in Ranchi, he went one step further in trying to prove what a good wicket-keeper he is. In the 80th over, with Steve Smith just short of a century, he went back on his back-foot, tried to flick behind square but the ball got stuck between his legs.
Over-eager to take the "catch", Saha rushed to Smith and, well, this happened:

ESPNCricinfo described it a ball-grab scene that they can't elaborate on further.
It had umpire Ian Gould in splits.
Twitter, of course, sprang into life. (Warning: Some R-rated content ahead)
The fun continues. Was really funny from Saha.#IndvsAus— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) March 16, 2017
Not really sure what Saha was trying to do... but probably the funniest moment I have seen in Tests! 😂 #IndvAus— Chetan Narula (@chetannarula) March 16, 2017

Saha loves grabbing balls. Contact Shakib.— Fake Mitch Johnson (@NotMitchJohnson) March 16, 2017
Amid all this, the only person who didn't seem amused at all was Steve Smith. Can you blame him though?
