One Day cricket and also the recent rise in Twenty20 cricket has caused fielding to change drastically from what was usually seen in Test Matches. Fielding is now an important component of the modern game and athletes are required to be fitter, stronger and more agile.

Fielding was considered more of a stationary activity, and even diving and sliding was considered to be unnecessary. How times have changed.

One Day Cricket caused a shift in attitude, where teams began to realise that every single run was valuable and that great fielding could reduce a single run. Fielding brought a new way in which to induce pressure. It was not only about bowling well, it was about saving as many runs as possible in the field too.

The new format of the game encouraged players to start focusing on their fielding. Catching and saving runs became so much more important. A new intensity was required in the field to remain competitive and without it, you would slowly lose the chance to build pressure and work towards a win.

This transformation of fielding in the game has even influenced Test Cricket now, as you would expect. Cricket is no longer about only bowling and batting. Fielding plays an equally important role.

Not only that, it has now become a requirement that players prove themselves to be exceptional fielders, regardless of their main talent. Poor fielding skills may not even allow you to qualify for the team. It’s not an option anymore, it’s a requirement.

So what makes a great fielder? There are a number of things that need to be considered:

  • They can move extremely quick.
  • They have strong throwing arms.
  • They have safe hands.
  • They are wanting the ball to come to them as opposed to waiting for it.

So follow along in the next few weeks, I’ll be making a few videos where we can look at how we should be fielding. Most notably I will cover some ground fielding, throwing and catching, along with some strategies that you should consider when you’re actually fielding in certain positions.

Cheers!
