The ball games; when Wriddhiman Saha caught Steve Smith off guard

Australia recovered from early setbacks to reach a comfortable 299 for 4 on the first day of the third Test.

The incident provided some relief for the fans as before that, the first day of the Ranchi Test had been a rather tiresome affair in comparison to the previous two matches of the series.

Australian skipper Steve Smith did not see the amusing side of it when Indian wicket keeper Wriddhiman Saha practically wrestled the batsman to the ground in an effort to grab the ball that had lodged between Smith's legs. Even non-striker Glenn Maxwell seemed to smile a bit. As it happens "a lot" with sir's bowling, the ball took an unexpected turn and caught Smith off guard as the ball got stuck inside his pads. The incident did not amuse Smith at all as he went on to score his 19th Test century. With Smith playing nearly a chanceless innings till then, India wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha perhaps thought this could be the best opportunity to send him back. The usually reserved Saha kept on hunting for the red cherry even as both him and Smith fell over.

However, Smith was taking none of it and he took a tumble and in process also brought down Saha.
