Defending 187 in the ongoing second Test, the Indian team was in a spot of bother after Peter Handscomb and Mitchell Marsh had hit some quick boundaries to help Australia recover from a shaky start.

The visitors were reeling at 74 for 4 before the duo added 27 runs for the fifth wicket to calm down the nerves of the Australian dressing room. However, Ravichandran Ashwin struck at the right time to dismiss Marsh. The wicket put India firmly on top and the hosts took control of the proceeding after Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Mathew Wade. The Australia wicketkeeper-batsman lunged ahead to play the delivery expecting a turn. However, the ball did not turn and after hitting the inside edge of the bat, ricocheted off his pad towards the vacant short leg. But Wriddhiman Saha made a full length dive and took a brilliant catch to pile more misery on the visitors.

Here is a clip of that brilliant catch:

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
