    Fielding side rankings ODI"s ??

    1) Australia
    2) NZ
    3) South Africa
    4) England
    5) West Indies


    I'm not really sure who are the best of the subcontinent teams be can appreciate they are used to more unforgiving outfields particularly when young.

    1. Australia - no explanation necessary.
    2. Kenya - you don't get to the WC semis with a tail starting at 5 and enough pies to open a bakery.
    3. New Zealand - their dogfighting spirit spreads to the field.
    4. England - can credit a large part of their resurgence to their fielding.
    5. South Africa - acknowledging Jonty's example.

    There's no way S.Africa are as sharp as NZ in the field these days....definately in the 90s they were much better than NZ, but not anymore.

    I tend to agree with the order Zinzan has placed the top five sides in, they're definately the best five regardless of the order anyway.

    West Indies fielding is shabby. Too disorganised, like most of WI cricket at the moment...

    NZ have always been good in the field, it keeps us in alot of the matches we play.
    The only other team I can think of whose fast bowlers are also excellent fieldsmen are Australia.

    Surely India should be right up there. In Kaif and Yuvraj they have two of the best fielders in the world, Dravid is an excellent slip and Tendulkar is a very good all-round fielder. The only glaring liability is, of course, the captain.

    England? Robert Key is immobile, Graham Thorpe is slow, Geraint Jones is their version of Rahul Dravid, Trescothick and Giles are not the quickest, Harmison is a weak link in the outfield and the less said of Butcher the better. Vaughan has dropped a few sitters. The only good fielders they have are Strauss and Flintoff. Their one-day side is better on the field, with Collingwood, Pietersen and Solanki being more effective, while Chris Read's omission was unfortunate.

    They are a very good fielding side, but very inconsistent. They too have a few weak links.

    Unfortunately for them, their fielding form is often linked to their batting or bowling. When they were getting rolled over for totals of less than 150 in NZ, Yuvraj dropped one in Christchurch. Dravid is an excellent slip fielder, but he's terrible behind the stumps. Sehwag and Balaji are good, but inconsistent. Kumble and Zaheer are not naturally talented fielders but now put in a lot more effort. Dinesh Mongia's fielding is over-rated, since it is of little use. Laxman is a terrific slip-fielder, which can get early wickets. Ganguly is definitely the weakest link on the field, and he's no good anywhere- yet, he's the captain!

    You do if no one wants to play you.

    Good job Thorpe, Key and Butcher don't play ODIs, then, eh?

    It truly is incredible that everyone, just about, ranks Australia top. The one thing they can't do very well ATM is field. It's quite astonishing that they can become so poor in the field and, literally, no-one notices.
    New Zealand and South Africa are far, far better, and England and Sri Lanka are probably as good.
    No-one can be as poor as India, West Indies and Pakistan, and Bangladesh and Zimbabwe shouldn't even be playing regular ODIs. Kenya aren't, so they don't count.
