    Saha leaves and has to leave

    Saha made an error in judgment and paid a big price for that.

    Wriddhiman Saha's brave leave to a delivery from Ryan Harris on the stroke of tea on day three in Adelaide was perfect ... except it was the wrong delivery to leave. Having faced 94 balls for a battling 35, in the process adding 114 runs with Virat Kohli, Saha chose a terrible time to leave the ball. Had he not shouldered arms and seen out the remaining two deliveries, of the over India could have taken tea with the session's honours having not lost a wicket.

    Instead, Saha chose not to play a shot to a delivery that angled in on a length. It proved the wrong decision, as the ball cut back in sharply and took out the top of off stump.
