It is extremely hard to overemphasize the importance of fielding in a cricket game. While it wasn’t considered that much important in the earlier times but few players came and totally altered the lens of how it was seen. As a result, the cricketing world witnessed a lot of focus on this aspect of the game.
Discussing that, it is important to review the top fielders in modern-day cricket. Since 2017, Indian captain Virat Kohli turns out to be a sparkling fielder who has grabbed 95 catches to sit on the top spot. English skipper Joe Root installed himself on the second position grabbing 94 catches.
On third, we have the likes of Sri Lanka’s Kusal Mendis who completed 85 catches while talismanic all-rounder Ben Stokes is on 4th position with 80 grabs. Former South African captain Faf du Plessis too made it to the list with 78 catches. All of these cricketers are top fielders who have changed the face of many games with their fielding efforts.
