Best Fielders 2016
When most people think about cricket, what comes to their mind is batting and bowling. But fielding, an area which used to be grossly overlooked before is an equally important area in cricket. Good fielding not only saves runs but also boosts the morale of bowlers as they have reliable fielders watching their backs. A good catch changes the course of a game and gives a tremendous boost to the team’s morale in a critical situation. As the game got shorter and quicker the importance given to fielding grew many folds and now we enjoy watching good fielding as much as we enjoy watching good bowling or batting. Here are the Top 10 Best Fielders of 2016 that redefine fielding.
Top 10 Best Fielders 2016 – The Exclusive List
10. Ravindra Jadeja
Starting of our list of Top 10 Best Fielders 2016 we have none other than “Sir” Jadeja from India. Jadeja’s place in the squad has often been questioned due to his rather inconsistency but there’s no denying his talent. A bowler, who can extract turn from any pitch, is handy with the bat and is an able fielder too. With close to 100 catches in the International circuit, this young lad still has ways to go.

9. Steven Smith
At number 9 in our list of Top 10 Best Fielders 2016 we have the Australian ODI and Test captain, Steven Smith. Unlike those fielders who are very aggressive and animated on the field, he prefers to be calm and calculative and is often seen to take decisions that baffled the batsman, like once when he switched from first slip to leg slip in anticipation of a sweep shot based on the batsman’s position. Such quick thinking at crucial times has often reaped fruits for his time.
