'Catches win you matches'. This statement does hold true but it is a more specific version derived from a statement that has a rather broader meaning. The parent statement here should be, 'fielders win you matches'.
Yes, you read that right. Catches are important, especially those which are plucked out of thin air and help you get that important wicket for your team. But what's equally important is when you help your side saves those crucial runs and inflict a run out with a quick release of the throw and let your team have an upper hand in the game.
These moments of brilliance have time and again helped change the course of the game and today we'll be seeing a list of active players from each country who have consistently contributed in the field without the ball or bat in hand.
Bangladesh - Soumya Sarkar
Bangladesh cricket has been on a rapid rise over the last decade. They have a very passionate set of cricketers, and all of them have really worked hard to take Bangladesh cricket to a level where they can give the best of the sides a run for their money.
The most drastic improvement that they've made out of the three departments has to be their fielding. Bangladesh were never known for their fielding, but the new age cricketers have changed this notion for good. Choosing one fielder from this team was the toughest out of all the teams but Soumya Sarkar makes the cut because of how light he is on his feet and how he is equally good while fielding in the slips and in the deep.
