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...

Suresh raina represents the new age Indian cricketer. An attacking left-hander who goes for the big shots with impunity and clears the field with a swashbuckling flourish when at the top of his game, raina is also equally capable of attracting applause as an electric fielder in the circle. All of this, though, is tempered against the short ball, which has been mercilessly exposed in test cricket.

There haven't been many, who give themselves for the game. They worry about injuries and and their own well being. But suresh never disappoints anyone, and can give 200% when it comes to fielding. Can be trusted eyes closed and has shown commitment like very few there ever have been.

2 Jonty Rhodes

It is not even a close call to be fair. Yes there are some exceptional fielders out there, such as Ponting, Collingwood, Yuvraj, Gibbs, and Dilshan to name a few, but they don't come close to the man who practically reinvented fielding; Jonty Rhodes. It's simple - the guy was a genius.

No doubt that he is best fielder. He is a top class field man ho its great for south africa it's a god gift he has got a too good speed he is missiel or a rocket which flyes all over the ground no one can compare him yes its true that he is a rocket and he rocks full ground. He will lead the pack in all times. He is a great rocket!

What kind of list is this Jonty Rhodes is on second no fair!
I mean that is was like a rocket he really flied to pick a catch
The ball never went 20 meters above,left and right to the fence during his fielding
And on the place where three fielders required he one was enough
He is the best no one equals him especially in fielding

No doubt that he is the best fielder. The way he move for taking the ball in his arms is really unbelievable...

3 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!

Don't know why I bother with these Polls a bit rigged really when 2 billion Indians just vote for Indians. Jonty Rhodes number 1 followed by Ricky Ponting without a doubt.

Ricky is amazing he can catch anything and hits the stumps nearly every throw and he is also #3 in the best batters of all time GO RICKY!

He was great fielder and worthwatching in the in the field. He has always been one of the greatest sports athlete to whom none of us gonna forget.

4 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.

The greatest- take a look back and see- ranked to low

The world best fielder I watched since 1983.

He is the icon of Fielding

5 Ravindra Jadeja

Reflexes, accuracy and agility he has it all. The cover point region is impregnable when he is lurking there. A lightning fast throwing arm makes him a potent outfield fielder as well

He is the best fielder in this current era. He has the rare instinct of hitting the stumps directly. Most of the time never drops a catch. Powerful left hand.

Ravindra jadeja is the best fielder in the world, to save runs, to pick up the catches and also for hitting stumps. He made mistakes sometimes but I am no. 1 fan of r jadeja

Best in Indian Cricket history. All the Direct hit run out he has earned, adds an edge over any fielders.
Probably the best in the Current Era.

6 A.B Devilliers

I can't understand why the hell Indians don't have any brain to to put ab into 3rd
India is a good fielding now, but far away from saffas'
Indian main fielders like Raina can only match upto South Africa's Steyn's fielding mostly, especially when fielding in thevout field and also when throwing it into the wickets
Then how could that man come first in your list I don't know,

Don't do these kinds of bulls
Raina like fielders are only contemporary,

AB and Jonty are in the history of this game and fielding,

The main problem associated with these fools who ranked raina first is that they are Indians and not the quality viewers of the game to see more matches irrespective of the nation.

That's all
Thanks

Yeah sure makes a whole lot of sense. Suresh Raina the best fielder... Better than AB and even Jonty? AB is by a thousand miles the best fielder today. His speed, intensity reflexes... amazing. Jonty is king but if ever there was a prince.. no doubt who it is. And you all might think I'm a South African showing blind support for Jonty and AB but guess what I'm an Indian settled in India too. Wow! Suresh Raina... What a joke...

Johnty is sure the legend here, and he is impossible to beat, but the thing is we have to consider the situation here.
AB has been the best fielder in his generation without a doubt & you have to add his keeping ability.
So that makes him an all rounder in the fielding dept. (IF someone thinks that way)

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.

7 Mark Waugh

Dead heat between M Waugh and R Ponting

Best one handed catcher I ever saw

Best all around fielder ever

Evryone voting otherwise is on drugs.

8 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

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

He throws amazingly fast

9 Yuvraj Singh

I love him. I am his fan. He is the no.2 fielder after jhonty. He is the number 1 Indian fielder. Nice man.

He is the lone player in the world who made comeback after cancer. According to me he is the best man when he is in the field

He is an increadible fieder. He is the only fielder to do impossible catches to paosible catches. I like the way he catches the ball. He does awesome catches. He is the flying catcher ever.

Yuvraj Singh is ultimate fielder. I remember the time when Yuvi came in Indian team,His stunning catches shocked everyone that time He is number 1 fielder

10 Mark Taylor
The Contenders
11 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 :(

He is indeed a good batsman also. Every cricketer passes through his bad times. But this player was dropped from the national side after Dhoni was made the captain. We miss him till today also. Jonty Rhodes has indeed regarded Kaif as one of the best fielders after him.

When he played, I just watched the matches to see him field!

It is a fact to recall, no one. absolutely no batsmen would even accidentally want to hit where he stood.

He wasn't all that a great batsman, but the amount of runs he saved for the team, made up for it!

12 Kieron Pollard

He is one of the best fielder in the world!
The catch which he took at the IPL 2019 against csk of Suresh Raina was amazing!
Love you pollard!

My god what catches he takes he is air borne. You should se his diving catches. What awesome catches you know they ate the best catches in the the whole world.

What about the one where he had to throw the ball back over his shoulder, because he was running into the rope and took a diving catch
Sensational.

OH my god what an amazing fielder he catches the ball nicely and then his dance on the stadium is fantastic. Rock on west indies

13 Virat Kohli

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
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

Virat Kohli is great player for Indian team. Whenever he hits century mostly India doesn't lose the match.In test matches he hit 18 centuries and out of those 18 matches India lost only 4 ( drawn: 6 won: 8 ). In odi matches he hit 32 centuries and out of those 32 matches India lost only 5 matches and won 27. He is having an average of 50 in all three formats ( Test: 50.13 odi: 55.74 t20: 52.86 )

He is very young and inexperienced but still is able to bat the best and take catches of the best, so virat is the number 1 best fielder in the world. And accept it in today's cricket he is the best fielder dis counting the retired players.

Never seen a brilliant fielder like kohli. His fielding has really afected the indian team to reach heights. Excellent from my point of view! Keep it up

14 Carl Hooper
15 Viv Richards

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.

16 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.

Best Pakistani player in the history of the game. Absolutely briliant entertainer for the crowd and amazing in every field of the game.

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.

17 Mahendra Singh Dhoni Mahendra Singh Dhoni, commonly known as MS Dhoni, is an Indian international cricketer who captained the Indian national cricket team.

The best Indian wicket - keeper...
Mahi bhai, I cannot compare you with any one!

He must be after to raina. Who can do a lightning stumping like him?

You are best fielder and keeper biggest fan of yours

God of cricket
Best batsman in the world
Best finisher
Best wicketkeeper
goat-great of all time

18 Allan Border
19 Steve Smith

How is Smith not higher?! He is one of the greatest fielders of the Modern Era and has produced some of the greatest catches of the century!

He is best fielder in the IPL than everybody is called superman. He is a great fielder in the cricket.

Steve Smith is a fielding hero he is super at catching and he should be number 5

He takes one handed blinders in almost every game. The best at the moment.

20 Paul Collingwood

1. Watch other fielders body language while collingwood taking a catch.
2. Watch other players reaction towards collingwood after taking a catch and they left the bowler stranded.
3. Watch the batsmens face / expression after collingwood finishes his job.
4. Hear the commentators immediate response regarding collingwoods catch.
5. Imagine and try yourself in collingwoods position to take that catch.
That's it.

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.

No doubt! Jonty the number 1
It will be Paul collingwood as No.2 in fielding and number 1 in catching!
Wait and see!
The world will came to know / understand / realise the truth!

In the past - Sir Donald Bradman
At present - Sachin Tendulkar

In the past - Jonty Rhodes
At present - Paul Collingwood

21 David Warner David Andrew Warner is an Australian cricketer and the current vice-captain of the Australian cricket team.

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

He is the BEST.. He ran 170 m every over just to be at long on every over.. A fielder every captain would want... BEST EVER!

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

He is one of the best fielders in the world and he is like lightning

22 Rohit Sharma Rohit Gurunath Sharma is an Indian international cricketer who plays for Mumbai in domestic cricket and captains Mumbai Indians.

He is best at his best...best batsman in the world and best captain too...he is destruction for oppenents and has no solution for him...fielding is highly appreciated

He is the best fielder in cricket world no one like him in slip and if you had seen his catches then no doubt he is the best.

He is the all time best for Indian cricket team he is the legend of cricket

In my opinion Rohit is the best player after Jonty Rhodes.. His fielding is really nice to watch

23 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".

What is he doing at the thirteenth place? He should be crowned.

He is the most brilliant fielder in test cricket as on date.

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

24 Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer and captain, widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

Sachin tendulkar next cricket father

Bakra fielder but the best batsmen

His feilding is good

25 Dwayne Bravo

Why is he so low have you seen his fielding and catching he should be in the top ten

He is a greatest fielder...

Does in style
