It needed something special to dismiss Aussie batsman Peter Handscomb, who had edged one of Ishant Sharma's deliveries hard into the slip cordon during the ongoing Test match in Perth. That's when Virat Kohli came to the rescue.

Australia started the final session of the second Test's first day at Perth with 145/3 as India were keen on picking up wickets. Kohli brought Sharma back into action after Tea and the pacer immediately produced an opportunity for the visitors.

Sharma bowled one short and Handscomb, unable to resist, cut it hard to the second slip. Kohli, who was stationed there produced a one-handed blinder, stretching full to his right, completing a clean catch in the end.

Kohli's incredible catch made its way to social media.

Appreciating his Superman-like efforts, cricket fans celebrated the dismissal.

According to cricket analyst Freddie Wilde, the acrobatic catch was worth +23.50 runs to India.

Meanwhile, Australia has steadied its ship to bring up 251/6 on the scoreboard after losing quick wickets in the second session. Aussie openers Aaron Finch (50) and Marcus Harris (70) provided a solid start for the hosts, scoring a fifty each. Travis Head hit another fifty of the series before being dismissed for 58 by Ishant Sharma.
