Best Fielders in Cricket History


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

Yesss my champ šŸ˜ best filder in the world

2 Jonty 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

4 A.B Devilliers

Yes.! It's A.B.D... People talk about johnty, ponting... But right now he is the best and now is even closer 2 him... Rahul from India

De villers is simply best. His reflexes are very fast and furious

AB de Villiers is known to continue Jonty Rhode's legacy of fielding. He is by all means the best fielder at present and looking at him reminds me of jonty.

He guys,this man is out of the world
We can compare him only with Jonty Rhodes
He should be at second position only behind of Jonty

5 Shahid 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.

6 Ricky Ponting

Ricky is simply the best.
No match for him.
A brilliant athlete.
A terrific fielder.
Safest catcher.
Owner of a rocket arm.
The Runout genius. He had run as many batsman out than an individual could ever imagine.
He has the ability to hit when it matters.
Ricky is the best. Ricky is the king!

He is my favourite cricketer and he should be on number 1

He's the best in the world

He is the best ever period!

10 Mohammad 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.

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 :(

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...

My best fielder ever

The Contenders

Yes! Expression of other fielders, bowler, oppositions batsman and commentators comments said it all that collingwood truly one of the legends had ever played the great game of cricket.

In the past Jonty
At present Colly
Jonty Rhodes and Paul Collingwood will be remembered as top two fielders ever played the game of cricket

14 Brett Lee Brett Lee Brett Lee is a former Australian international cricketer and film actor. He is a former Channel Nine Commentator.

He is just a athletic... His throwing is the best.. Always goes to the right place... And he is also very fast in the field.

He is the best

Is the best baller of all time

15 Gus Logie

Kaif, Brett Lee, and Pollard being ahead of a genuinely all-time great fielder like Logie is a crime. He was almost a glorified fielding pick, although a handy batsman too. - truckturner

He is the icon of Fielding

16 Michael Hussey

Michael Hussey was a stunning fielder and is now a legend

He should be at 2nd place

Super hero...

17 Abdul Razzaq

He is one of the best fielders I have seen!

Handy fielder nit fit for crikey

He is the world class fielder and all-rounder I have ever seen.

19 Mark Waugh

Best all around fielder ever

Dead heat between M Waugh and R Ponting

Evryone voting otherwise is on drugs.

20 Eknath 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.

He is one of the most fielder in world. I thing is no one feilder and no one position.

23 Andrew 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.

Best fielder for Australia of all time. Ricky Ponting agrees

He throws amazingly fast

It's a very nice and very inspiring player for all

24 Ajinkya Rahane

Ajinkya is good player forever

I think he is one of the best fielders in India he should have been in top 5

He hold the record for most catches in test in one innings and he deserves number 1

Yes he is the best fielder in indian cricket team

Best fielder in the world his no doubt but his producing new fielding efforts and his best quality

30 Michael Clarke

Michael Clarke is clearly the best diving catcher in the world in my opinion only behind Ricky Ponting they were both Australian captains and Michael Clarke still is they were also very skilled at run-outs and once again Clarke still is

Michael clarke is the best felder in the world...

He is best athlete and I think he is one of the best fielder of top 5 in the world...

He has perfected impossible run outs and cathes for me he should be no 4 after rhodes. De villiers and gibbs

Viv Richards, Colin Bland, Jonty Rhodes, Paul Sheahan, Mark Waugh and the one that modern day so-called experts forget, Clive Lloyd. My top six off hand.

33 Tillakaratne Dilshan

Dilshan's the best I've seen. Athleticism and that too I his 30s. He's 36 now and still he dives around. Surely the best!

41 Mohammad Azharuddin

Best fielder Indian cricket history top on number 1 fielder in India

Amazing, how come arguably the best fielder ever not even in the top 10? May be because current generation slope

I think one of the best all round fielder in the history of cricket.

Amazing fielder, he should be rank above and he should be in top ten.

42 Colin Bland

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 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!

Colin Bland-simply the best fielder of all time.

If you talk to anyone that saw Colin Bland play, absolutely nothing will convince them that the game has ever seen a better fielder. Copmared to the likes of Jonty he was orders of magnitude better.

43 Mahela Jayawardene

The deadly M&M (Murali, Mahela) combination proved to be a death knell for many a time.

Mahela jayawardene is a best player in cricket history I love for mahela jayawardene

It has a very good fielder in I love for m jayawardene
