The Top Ten

1
Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina - Live Wire On the Field!
Energetic + Enthusiastic + Encouraging bowlers.

Suresh raina tweeted long ago :
I met johnty Rhodes and he said he thought I was Best Fielder in India, which I'm Extremely proud of!

Raina - India's Johnty!
He is the aggressive fielder with all abilities... He have no second thoughts to stop the ball or catch the ball... He never left the ball without attempting to stop...
If we watch the lattest cricket and compare with other guys as abdivillere, mohamaad kaaf, androsymond etcAmong them suresh was a best and be the best forever because he have a extra potential energy in the ground

2Jonty Rhodes
No doubt that he is the best fielder. The way he move for taking the ball in his arms is really unbelievable...
He is just the best nobody can be like him or even near him he is an exception and a legend in fielding he just like a rocket what a speed he posses he is simply the one and only one the best of the best sachin is cricket of god he is another one in fielding
He was rocket who fly all over ground. Brilliance like his will almost be impossible to equal. He will lead the the pack in the all time greats of fielding

More comments about Kieron Pollard

6Shahid Afridi
One of the most outstanding fielder of all time.

He always use to show courage towards the bowlers and other fielders and according to me and the facts also says the same that I never see him dropping the catch or having a misfield.

One of his memorable catches that he took against england in england in a tri series against newzealand in the semi final of champions trophy and the running catch again against kiwis in 2009 t20 world cup.

If it comes to enthusiasm than we all have to admit that he is the life line in cricket ground and the most beloved player in the cricketing world due to his passion and style.
Shahid Afridi is the best fielder because of his run outs and catches, also he holds a great record for hitting 100(37). One of the best catch he caught vs Newzeland was so great. He is the best fielder in PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board).
Shahid khan afridi is my favourite player in the history
Of cricket. My suggestion is that afridi have to play in the World Cup 2015. Afridi is so much talented. My wishes are with him.

7Virat Kohli
I LIKE HIS FEILDING AND IS TO SMART

He is just the best nobody can be like him or even near him he is an exception and a legend in fielding he just like a rocket what a speed he posses he is simply the one and only one the best of the best sachin is

8Ricky Ponting
Ricky is simply the best.

The Contenders

11Mohammad Kaif
Friends, have you forgotten this player? He is not in this list because he is not so popular. He is neither a good batsman or good bowler. But without any doubt he is the number 1 fielder in the history of Indian cricket. He was saving at least 20-30 runs in every match for India. His diving catches & superb run outs are unforgetable.

He is really the best fielder in Indian cricket history. He is even better than Raina and Yuvraj.

So please vote for him.
Really a wonderful feilder he is, you can say jonty rhodes of india very atheletic
Fantastic skills he shows in field...! Hope to see you in action very soon cheers mayn...
Please bring him back in india cricket team his father mohammed tarif how played Railways & Uttar Pradesh and His brother Mohammad Saif plays for Madhya Pradesh & Uttar Pradesh... Mohd kaif is also an very good player His most famous feat was helping India chase down 326 with 87* (off 75 balls) in the 2002 NatWest Series Final... He made a good comeback to the Test side against Australia late in 2004 scoring two half-centuries.. He made his fan very fast an rising player... Please bring him back we all miss you mohd kaif :(

If we are asked who is the best fielder in the world, no doubt David warner is the answer
More comments about David Warner

14Eknath Solkar
He always used to stand close-in without helmet and yet and fielded so very well. Bishan Bedi remembers him catching Tony Lewis in the Kolkata Test in 1973. "Tony went for a big shot and Ekki standing at forward short-leg took a rare evasive action. He ducked, but then, hearing the bat not middle the ball, quickly turned around and dived to pick up an unbelievable catch. Tony took a while to leave, reluctantly acknowledging a superb feat. No one will forget Ekki catching Alan Knott in the Oval Test that we won in 1971".
The people who are voting don't know about Eknath Solkar.That's why he is on 10th
What is he doing at the thirteenth place? He should be crowned.

Roshan Mahanama is an Epic Fielding Legend

He was best Pakistani fielder in 90's. Ijaz had great reflexes. he used to score 30 in an innings, used to save 20 in an innings so his avg was 50. he was best.

57David Miller
He is awesome at point

58Mark Waugh

59MH Bushby
Sir Don Bradman suggested once (allegedly) that Mike Bushby former Capt Cambridge Univ in early '50s was a great fielder so he deserves to be on the list despite playing only a handful of 1st Class games before embarking on a career in teaching.

Kaif bastt fieleder world off number 1

75Sachin Tendulkar
His feilding is good

76Colin Bland
Colin Bland was amazing. He was one of the first cricketers that specialised in fielding. He is forgotten by the new generation but will always be remembered by the older generation as a very fine specialist fielder that batsmen respected. What a man!
I agree - Bland was so good that he would give fielding exhibitions. His "party trick" was to knock all three stumps out of the ground from different fielding positions.

graham.clayton.906

Colin Bland-simply the best fielder of all time.

77Andrew Symonds
He managed to secure a spot in a top quality side, despite not being a great batsman, or bowler. He would constantly supply run outs, and superb catches and I don't recall him dropping a catch.
Its a very nice and very inspiring player for all

78Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Good allrounder and good bestman good space bowler and nice feilder good dd fielder nice catch he is man world top ten all rounder top ten feilder good sixers dd team nice t20 bowler no said man best feilder

84Derek Randall
Incredible, preposterous, massively talented, for those who never saw him imagine the Flintoff run out of Ricky Ponting on a routine basis (often with one stump to aim at). Perhaps most memorable for his famous Ashes catch that turned into a cartwheel! Sheer and utter exuberance meant that Cricket was always more exciting when he was on the field.
Simply the best with David Gower not far behind. To put Rhodes ahead of Randall is like putting the great Boycott ahead of Bradman. No contest!
