Cricket is not about batting and bowling, fielding is its important part too. Fielding can change all the odds in a cricket match. We often heard that cricket fans, critics and experts use to talk about only the two sides of the cricket i.e batting and bowling. People have their favorite batsman and bowlers but have you heard someone saying he is my favorite fielder? Rarely! Isn’t it! Today we are going to tell you about the 7 cricketers from the country where cricket is not just a game but a religion i.e India. Here we go!
1) Ravinder Jadeja
The current cricket sensation Jadeja is an all-rounder but has often been criticized for his batting and bowling spell. However, one aspect of the game, he can never be faulted is his fielding. He is quite attentive across the turf and is a pro in hitting directly to the stumps.
2) Yuvraj Singh
The Punjabi boy is as abrupt as a leopard when it comes to catch the ball around the field. The pride of Punjab is a pro in pulling off acrobatic catches and has a great eye for run outs.
3) Mohammad Kaif
The Uttar Pradesh blood redefined the Indian fielding culture along with Yuvraj Singh under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy.
4) Suresh Raina
This batsman is well known for his agility across the turf. His throwing accuracy rate is high. He is also very good at taking the catches in the slip.
5) Ajay Jadeja
This former cricketer is regarded as one of the best fielders in the Indian team during his time. However, he suffered a very bad time i.e match-fixing ban that almost ended his cricket career.
6) Robin Singh
This Trinidad-born Indian cricketer was mastered in chasing the ball ferociously and had a strong and accurate arm from the outfield. His collaboration with Ajay Jadeja helped India to elevate to a better fielding unit.
7) Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi
Surrounded by Bollywood celebrities at home like son Saif Ali Khan, wife Sharmila Tagore, daughter Soha Ali Khan and daughter-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan, the late Nawab Pataudi Jr. was perhaps the first man who showed the importance of fielding to the Indians. The one-eyed wonder was regarded as the Tiger because of his fielding prowess.
