McMillan learned his skills as a slip fielder catching golf balls during his younger days

One of the world's leading all-rounders in the 1990s, Brian McMillan was a surprisingly agile fielder for a man of his size in the slip cordon for South Africa.

McMillan attributed his safe hands to growing up as a kid catching golf balls and hard balls and he was extremely clinical in the slips earning a reputation as one of the safest hands in the game in the vital position.

Excelling with both bat and ball in equal measure, McMillan was an all-rounder in the truest sense with his fielding ability in the slips to go along with.

McMillan took 49 catches from 38 Tests as well as 42 catches from 78 ODIs.
