Catches win matches – this is one of the most famous one-liners cricket experts use. The fact is: a team cannot win a match just relying on their batting or bowling capabilities. Fielding has become an integral part of the game. A stunning catch, perfect dive to stop a boundary or superb throw to get someone run out can change the game in a fraction.
If you think that Jonty Rhodes, who played for the South African cricket team between 1992 and 2003 is one of the greatest fielders of all times, take a look at some of the most stunning catches in the history of Indian cricket.
Meanwhile, India Team will play three Test matches, three One Day Internationals and as many T20Is against Sri Lanka. The first Test match will be played at Eden Gardens in Kolkata starting November 16. The match will start at 9: 00 PM IST.
Ahead of the Test Series, Virat Kohli & Co. suffered a major blow after BCCI rested Hardik Pandya.
Pandya suffered an injury in his left hand while he was bowling the last over of the third and the decider Twenty20 International (T20I) against New Zealand at Thiruvananthapuram on November 7. Team India, however, won the match and lifted the trophy by defeating Kiwis 2-1.
