IPL: Most catches for each team in the tournament history
A couple of surprising names on the list.
By the day, fielding is becoming an important aspect for players. We hear a lot about how fielding has to become the secondary skill of a player. And with the advent of T20 cricket, fielding has become very crucial.
The IPL has seen a lot of brilliant catches and excellent fielding efforts. But here we focus on players who have taken the most number of catches for each team in the history of the IPL.
#8 Delhi Daredevils – Virender Sehwag (29)
Virender Sehwag was not the most athletic fielder. However, he had a very safe pair of hands. He used to stand in the slips at the start of the innings and took a few good catches in the cordon.
Considering the fact that Virender Sehwag played the most number of games of Delhi Daredevils (79 games), it is not a surprise that the Delhi dasher has taken the most number of catches for DD. He has also scored the most runs for DD – 2174 at an average of 29.37 and a strike-rate of 160.32. He played for Delhi for 6 years – from 2008 to 2013.
