    Most Pakistanis wouldn't agree with you, I'm sure.
    Nah, I am arguing they aren't a bad ODI fielding side.

    England's opening bowlers are two of the best outfielders in the world. KP and Trott are okay and they're probably the worst fielders in the side.
    I agree - that's why I'd have England at one.

    Gotta be England. As said, they're just strong all round. Insane number of boundaries cut off through cover and point last year in England against us.

    We're OK, I feel. Symonds would've made it ludicrously strong (an ring field of Ponting/Symonds/Clarke/Smith is o.O) but Smith is a decent replacement. It's in our outfielding that we're weaker.

    Hmm.. I feel Pakistan are the only fielding side I can say are worse than India with a fair amount of confidence.

    ditto
    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

    I am kinda torn on England. All their fielders are good but none of them are great. Then again, I can't immediately think of a side I would rate ahead of them.

    I would class Collingwood as nothing less than great. And Jimmy Anderson doesn't get enough raps - he is brilliant.

    Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are comparable to India in the fielding department.

    SL are a pretty decent side in the field. Better than India definitely.

    Nah, Sri Lanka are a good side. Not the best but they're better than India.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Collingwood is genuinely great. Strauss isn't the most naturally athletic or flashy of fielders but he catches/stops basically everything that comes remotely near him. Bell is vastly improved. Morgan is excellent. Their fast bowlers are excellent, Anderson is a gully fielder in tests.

    If Symonds was still playing it'd be Aus for sure

    Their fast bowlers fielding at fine leg and third man are better than India's. After the fielding restrictions are over, there is not much of a difference if you watch closely.
