Keegan Petersen produced a spectacular catch to dismiss Cheteshwar Pujara in the second delivery of the morning on day three of the third Test between South Africa and India in Cape Town. 

India finished day two on an overnight score of 57/2, with an overall lead of 70 runs. Cheteshwar Pujara was on strike to face Marco Jansen in the first over of day three. 

Although Pujara played out the first delivery safely, he was dismissed in the very second delivery by Jansen as he tried to play a short delivery down the leg side. Pujara ended up glowing it and Petersen took a superb acrobatic catch in the leg slip.
