    I must say I think Paul Collingwood.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.

    Symonds is good, but Collingwood has taken some amazing catches. Usually dfying the laws of "Fyzzix"

    As much as it pains me to say it, he is the best. He never drops them, rarely misses the stumps and stops everything.

    While we're at it, here's a fielding XI. Obviously, you have to be decent with bat/ball too.

    Stephen Fleming*, Herschelle Gibbs, Ricky Ponting, Paul Collingwood, Yuvraj Singh, Andrew Symonds, Mark Boucher, ....., ....., ....., .....

    Reserves: Hayden, Hussey, DeVilliers, Bravo

    Somebody help me finish that lineup ...

    Brett Lee, Chris Cairns and Glenn McGrath. All of them very good bowlers and very solid outfielders. Equally you could get rid of one of the batsman and put Warne in there.

    Lee for sure. Cairns has retired and McGrath botches too many in the outfield IMO.

    Anyone else?

    Freddie at slip is not too bad, would add to your bowling
    You know it makes sense.

    My bad about Chris Cairns, totally forgot he had retired. Flintoff is a very capable slipper and his outfielding is pretty good aswell.
