    whenever someone says outstanding display of fielding, the first thing that comes to mind is Jonty Rhodes' 'superman' dive to run out Inzy in the 92 world cup.
    Kaif's catch last year against pakistan was a showstopper as well.
    there are several in this category, me thinks.

    Chris Harris, all the time.


    Matthew Sinclair's beautiful one handed(it was his left hand too) diving catch to dismiss Matthew Hayden was incredible.

    Steve Waugh's catch behind the site screen in the 80s. What an effort.

    Daren Ganga's superman effort against South Africa a couple years ago.
    Brian Lara's one-handed snag off Klusener's smash last year.
    Collingwood's catch off Gayle (?) earlier this year.
    Dillon's catch off Tendulkar a few years ago (Singapore Challenge).
    Kallis' one-handed catch off Jones in the last Test.

    Some of the ones that are fresh in my mind right now.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    another one was Vasbert Drakes' catch in the world cup near the boundary.
    That was phenomenal.
    Another catch that impressed me was by Gibbs in England.....it was a hard chance while he was in the slips and he fumbled it....but he had the amazing presence of mind to kick the ball up before it hit the ground and catch it on the second attempt.

    NZ's effort to run out Brian Lara at the 2003 World Cup with the relay throw to Cairns who hit the stumps from side-on.

    mark alleyne sliding 3 times before stopping a ball that was really never going to make it to the boundary
    in my mind the best catch ive ever seen was undoubtedly adam bachers catch of tendulkar in SA 8 years ago. it still sticks- left hand(and remembers hes right handed), goes backward, then almost flies in the air(still backward) with his hand outstretched to take the catch and all this just a few inches from the boundary, it would have been a brilliant piece of fielding had he saved the 6 let alone taken the catch. tendulkar was of course batting on 169.

    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    a great piece of fielding to see the back of a batsman always elicits a mixed reaction from me.
    While i am extremely appreciative of the fielder's effort, i cannot help but feel that the batsman just got 'robbed' and didnt deserve to get out.

    Actually I rate Matthew Sinclair a very good fielder...he's good in the gully & of course he probably took the best catch of 2004 on the boundary in the Hadlee/Chappell trophy.

    Other good fielders: Ponting, Rhodes, Harris

    There was a catch taken by Peter Toohey in the outfield on one of India's tours to Australia I think. It was incredible. I am not sure if he was actually playoing or acting as a substitute.

    Even Madan Lal held a stupendous catch in the deep, probably on the same tour.
