Fielding Skills

Fielding is one of the major area of the game. Ability to execute skills can win a game - a great catch or run out can be as valuable as taking a vital wicket with your bowling or scoring important runs.


Importantly, good fielding skills and the right attitude when fielding can make the difference in deciding who is selected for a high standard team. Being a great fielder can make a major difference to how far you progress in the game and can keep you in a team even if you aren't scoring a lot of runs or taking a lot of wickets.
