    I don't think there's a better slipper than Flintoff at the moment.

    I'll let someone else choose other positions.

    I'd disagree...Fleming has been a very good slipsman for a number of years now. He's dropped a couple in recent times but generally he's very safe.

    Take your pick at point...Yuvraj, Collingwood, Gibbs, Harris etc.

    Collingwood is becoming a really good backward point type fielder...he nearly makes a spectacular catch every game it seems. As for Flintoff i just cant see anyone better than him atm in the slips...his bucket like hands can snap up anything and he's very tall but still able to dive around fairly well to snap up stuff thats away from his body too.

    POnting is number 1

    Hayden, Yuvraj, Fleming and Gibbs are all pretty good

    Surely Dwayne Smith could get a mention. Dwayne Bravo and Dave Mohammed aren't half bad either.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    All round fielding, Ponting to me is still the best.

    Cover fielders: Yuvraj, Kaif, Gibbs

    Marshall's catching let him down a bit in ENG, but his ground work reminds me of Jonty..............

    As an all-round fielding unit probably Aus, NZ & South Africa are the best.

    Call it bias, but I still put Ponting up the top fielding-wise. Gibbs is closest to him for mine.

    Gibbs, Fleming, Kallis, Symonds aren't all too far behind.

    Im guessing people will disagree with Symonds however I am willing to reply to any arguments.
