Ponting > Jonty IMO.
He'd hit the stumps down every game.

Ponting for me is the best ever, Jonty just was no match for Punter in terms of hitting the stumps. Jonty was amazing at stopping balls, but Punter would get you more wickets with run outs and freakish catches in ANY position, in any format of the game.
It's pretty close, I've normally gone with Symonds, but Ponting was good anywhere in the field. Jonty was good fun to watch too though, amazing athleticism.
All in all though you can only field in one spot at any time so I'll give it to short square leg specialist with short square legs, Boony.
My Current XI 1.Cook 2. Pujara 3.Smith 4.Du Plessis 5.DeVilliers* 6. Watling+ 7.Faulkner 8.Ashwin 9.Philander 10.Wahab Riaz 11.Steyn
Favourite player currently: Ellyse Perry
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
Ground fielding is more important than catching in a career IMO.
I hold the exact opposite view.
I would also like to point out how I feel like there is an enormous difference between guys who take chances vs. the guys who create chances out of nothing. That's what really separates the geniuses in the field.
Edit: An no Jonty isn't in the latter category.

What? You are saying Jonty didn't create chances out of nothing?
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
not at the level of a ponting or devilliers.
Yeh 2 of those catches are really good.
Jonty was way better than any one else i have seen. Guys like Ponting, De Villiers have been outstanding, no doubt about that, but Jonty was a freak, he was just too quick.
