If you consider a number of the Indian fielders of our Test line up from the 2000s, no one was really outstanding in the field but they were all good catchers. Pak had quite a few teams like that from my memory. This utter ineptitude in terms of catching seems a more post 2000 thingy than anything else..
    This much is true. They weren't always this atrocious.

    Wasim, in the late 90s when he was captain ensured a decent fielding standard (himself being not that bad). We had Azhar Mahmood, Shahid Afridi, Ijaz Ahmed, Inzy (slips) who were all pretty decent I would say.
    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

    Quite ironic since Pakistani's crappy catching is often used as a reason to big up Wasim's (already awesome) record - i.e. "imagine if he had fielders who could catch!".

    I will disagree with that... They may not have had guys who can turn half chances into chances, but they surely had more than enough people who can hold on to the chances that did come their way, unlike this current team.

    They were always bad at fielding. It was one reason why Wasim and Waqar relentlessly attacked the stumps.

    i never said they were good. I said they weren't always this atrocious.

    And as Xuhaib says the rest were quite mediocre (some definitely being sub standard)

    and yeah, we didn't have afridi, azhar mahmood and abdur razzaq very frequently in the test team either. I was talking about ODIs

    They need to practice tennis ball high catches for an hour each a day, then do an hour of flat catching with tennis balls too. Soft hands ffs

    More a product of them being masters of reverse which generally tails into the batsman.

    Imagine the loss to cricket when Wasim and Waqar operate in 2015 and can't get the ball to reverse because of the ****ty two new balls rule.

    To be fair, most teams are getting the ball to reverse within the 25 overs per ball.

    And back in their time, they'd end up having the ball changed around the 35-40th over because it would go green and you couldn't pick it up anyway.
