Who is India’s Best Fielder of All Time

Who is India’s best fielder of all time? Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Suresh Raina or Ravindra Jadeja?

India’s best fielder of all time is something we should think of. Finally who, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Suresh Raina or Ravindra Jadeja.  By the end of late 90s, India had improved in fielding standards. It was Australia and South Africa who were known to be a best fielding side in the world. It is well said for fielding icon Jonty Rhodes that half of his quota runs he makes while saving boundaries on field. After the pair of Yuvraj Singh and Mohammad Kaif, India could also came in the list of best fielding side. Now India also save lots of runs due to their fielding.

India has variety of class batsman. India produced batsman like Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma, MS  Dhoni and Virat Kohli. But when it comes to fielder India is left with few names.  We will discuss here that who is the best Indian fielder of all time. From Kapil Dev to Ravindra Jadeja, India witnessed lots of good fielder like Ajay Jadeja, Robin Singh, Rahul Dravid, Mohammad Azharuddin, Mohammad Kaif, Yuvraj Singh, Reetinder Singh Sodhi, Suresh Raina, Hardik Pandya, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja. 

Of course India’s fielding standard were highlighted by Yuvraj Singh and Mohammad Kaif. These two brought India ahead in area of fielding. We have seen them inside the thirty yard circle in the first 15 overs, and then they were seen fielding at the boundary during the slog overs. This is what make them special in fielding. Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja have been doing the same job for India for last few years.

No doubt all of them are India’s best fielder but how we can say who is India’s best fielder of all time. Before we go ahead let’s know about the attributes of a perfect fielder.

#1 Diving Skills: A player can not be called a good fielder until he is able to dive. Now diving can be categorised in few ways that is diving towards left and right, diving to forwards and backwards and more importantly diving inside the circle in 2 to 3 metre up in the air with nano seconds of reflection. Watch the example here….

#2 Speed of Throw: This is another skill of a fielder. You have seen many good fielder inside the 30 yard circle but why they are not set as a boundary fielder for the team. The only reason is that speed of throw and how quickly throw covers the area from boundary to the turf. Rahul Dravid and Ajit Agarkar was the best example of it. Rahul Dravid was good under the 30 yard circle whereas Ajit Agarkar was one of the best boundary fielder for India but then he was never be a good fielder for 30 yard circle. Because of his rocket through Jadeja is judged one of the best fielder of India. Watch the example here…

#3 Chasing the Ball: Another skill required for a perfect fielder is his running capability. Many times a fielder has to chase the ball before it crosses the boundary line. Brendan McCullum was a perfect example of it from the world of cricket. Watch here

 

In this debate we believe that Ravindra Jadeja has been one of the most influential players on the field for India. His bullet throw makes him special. Former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra said, “Jadeja is absolutely outstanding, he has a rocket arm, just look at his ground coverage.”

Indian cricket fans says that Raina and Jadeja are the best Indian fielders of all the time, some also keep Kaif and Yuvi in the list of India’s best fielder. But what makes Jadeja different from others is his throw’s speed. 

Earlier this month, Jadeja had achieved an MVP rating of 97.3 and as a result, he was also rated as the second most valuable Test player worldwide by Wisden, only second to Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan.
