Saha is back in team India after a long break due to injury and this lead to raise lots of eye brows against his selection in the 2nd test against South Africa in place of R. Pant but the wicketkeeper has silenced the doubters with his superlative glovework in the ongoing home series against South Africa.
Saha caught two amazing catches with one hand by almost flying high in air. This earned lots of kudos purely for his glovework but Saha enjoyed that rare acclaim during the second test between Smartcric India v South Africa at Pune.

While India captain Virat Kohli received the man-of-the-match award for his career-best knock of 254, and fast bowler Umesh Yadav and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin picked up six wickets apiece, Saha did not even get a chance to bat.

He had only five dismissals to his name during the test but his impact was hailed by his team mates and drew instant praise from Twitter users, who dubbed him “Superman Saha”.
“It’s a no-brainer to say that Saha is one of the best going around, and I’ve hardly seen him miss anything,” Ashwin told reporters after the third day’s play on Saturday.
Saha cemented his place in the longest format of the game in early 2015 after serving as the incumbent to India captain and wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
However, India’s first-choice glovesman suffered a hamstring injury during a Cape Town test in January last year and subsequently found himself out of the side for 18 months after going through shoulder and finger problems.
