Fielding skills in the world of cricket have been dramatically improved since South African great Jonty Rhodes stepped on the cricketing field. He revolutionized this art and today we see many athletic players, diving, saving runs and taking some breathtaking catches :) We have seen brilliant fielders, now in every team, like Gibbs, Symonds, Collingwood, De Villers, David Hussey, Adam Vogues, Louie Vincent, Bravo, Yuvraj, Suresh Raina, ROhit Sharma and the list goes on.. Who you think is the best Fielder after the great Jonty Rhodes.. !!

Yes, the fielding standards the world over has improved over the last few years. It has been mainly due to the advent of the ODIs to begin with and now with the T20 cricket where each run saved is a run scored and that could make a big difference in the final tally. So yes, you can say that Jonty set the standards that others have now tried to emulate and that has led to the improved standards. Cheers! Ram
