    they're all spinners though right?
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Ponting, Clarke, Symonds, Chris Harris, Guptill and Collingwood all up there imo.

    I remember that video of yours with every runout Ponting had affected in international cricket. Best. Video. Ever.

    Any chance of an updated version? He might have made a few more after you uploaded that...

    I thought Harper the best but not much in it. Perhaps JR did not hit the stumps enough. Never saw Colin Bland but he must have been something special as I have seen some all time XIs include him just for his fielding

    Bob Simpson was a hellova fielder. Mostly a slipper obvs so not so well remembered for ground fielding. Tubs was the same. Just so great at first slip against pace or spin.

    Harper was a freak, much like Rhodes.

    but Mark Waugh and Ponting were the top shelf I reckon. Junior was also a great ground fielder like Punter. Both had impossibly superb hands, incredible anticipation and deadly accurate throws close to the wicket.

    Brad McNamara? Nope doesn't ring any bells.

    Guys like Collingwood and Ponting came remotely close. Rhodes truly was on a different level though. There might have been a few in FC cricket that I am not aware of, but of all the cricket I've seen, Rhodes was easily the best. Symonds was brilliant as well as is Andre Russell.

    Edit: I've forgotten about Trevor Penney. It's a close call between Rhodes and Penney.

    Gotta be Jonty Rhodes for me, I feel he gets a bit hard done by because he stood out at a time when fielding wasn't given that much importance. I reckon if he was a player in today's time he would be an even better fielder than he was back them, regardless of whether its ground fielding or slips catching or w/e.

    Ab devilliers is an absolute freak as well.

    Colin Bland, Norm O'Neill, Roger Harper,Neil Harvey, Andrew Symonds, Ricky Ponting, Rohan Kanhai, Alvin Kallicharan, Seymour Nurse, Greg Chappell, Colin Cowdrey. That's eleven who are ALL equal to or better than Jonty Rhodes

    Warner isn't even the best fielder in his own team.
