Pakistan’s fielding has been a huge disappointment in the ongoing ICC World Cup. The sloppy fielding has cost them many runs throughout the tournament and Pakistan have dropped the most number of catches than any other team so far.
It’s a famous cricket proverb which goes, ‘catches win matches’, so if Pakistan want to get hold of the trophy then there is a dire need to improve their fielding performance in the coming matches. With so much criticism directed at Pakistan’s fielding, right-arm pacer Anwar Ali claims that he is still the best fielder in Pakistan, despite last playing an international match for the Men in Green in March 2016.
Speaking in an interview he said, “I still consider myself as the best fielder in Pakistan. Fielding is something which can only improve with interest and this is precisely the reason why I’m good at it.”
The 31-year-old said that if players spend an hour or two practising their bowling and batting in nets then they should also spend a considerable amount in the fielding drills as well.
