One cannot deny the importance of fielding in a cricket match, and if the match is of limited-overs like T20, then saving runs is the most important thing on the field. Fielders are like guardians in a cricket match. They run, they dive, they chase the ball, they take catches and they prevent the opposite team from scoring runs. A team that fields well, has more chances to win.
With the passage of time, T20 cricket is getting more popular and the game is tilted more towards batsmen, fielding has become more serious business. There is a famous quote” catches win matches” and this is absolutely true. Johnty Rhodes, Suresh Raina, Steven Smith and Rickey Ponting are the names of the best fielders in the history of cricket.
