Twitter was on fire after India wicket keeper Rishabh Pant took a stunning catch diving to his left in the second session of Day 2 in the India vs England second Test match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Pant’s superb catch sent back England batsman Ollie Pope as India tightened their grip further on the match.

Pant, who is often criticised for his glovework behind the stumps, tried to prove a point by holding on to that excellent catch off Mohammed Siraj's first ball of his spell.

It happened, in the 39th over of the England innings when Siraj strayed down the leg side but got the ball to bounce slightly more than what Pope expected. The England No.6 lost control and ended up getting a glove.

Pant took one step towards his left and dived full length to grab the ball on his left hand. When he made contact with the ground it just appeared to slip out of his grasp but he managed to hold on to it to complete a brilliant catch.

Here are some of the reactions:

“This is magical from Rishabh Pant, diving to his left,” Said Gavaskar during commentary.
