After Saha's injury, Parthiv Patel was the obvious choice to fill the vacant spot for the second Test. Though Saha was ordinary with the bat in the first Test, he was brilliant with the gloves. Saha broke former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's record to set a new milestone of most number of catches taken by an Indian glovesman in a match, during the first Test.
Saha managed to take as many as ten matches in the two innings to take the top spot in the list, overtaking Dhoni's record which he set during the Melbourne Test against Australia in 2014. Saha picked five catches in each of the two innings to take the numero uno spot.
Also, Saha became only the fifth wicket-keeper ever to scalp ten catches in a match. Saha joined the likes of Robert Taylor and Adam Gilchrist to take 10 catches, while he is now only behind Jack Russell and AB De Villiers in this illustrious list.
