Fielding is an underrated facet of cricket that gets overshadowed by brilliant batting and bowling performances. A fielding unit of a team has to always be on their toes to save boundaries, grab catches, and affect run-outs.

And make no mistake, fielding has become even more vital in fast-paced T20 cricket, where every catch and run is worth the weight of gold.

The fielder or boundary rider needs to be agile and quick on the ground. The IPL 2024 has some excellent catchers on the roster.

Kohli is close to piping out Suresh Raina (109) as the highest catch-taker in the league’s history. Similarly, Rohit Sharma and Jadeja are close to grabbing 100 catches in their respective IPL careers.

RCB’s flying hawk, AB de Villiers, holds the record for plucking the most catches in a single season, with 19 to his name in 2016. It will be fascinating to see someone go past his tally in IPL 2024.
