In the shortest format of the game, fielding plays a crucial role in a team’s good performance. Bowlers don’t get much help from the surface so they have to rely on fielders on most occasions. Catching has reached a different level in the T20 format due to merciless bashing by the batsmen. There are some players who have always shined in fielding. Let’s have a look at the players with the most catches in the T20 World Cup.
AB DE Villiers
South African legend AB DE Villiers has taken the most catches in the T20 World Cup history. AB’s fielding was as good as his exceptional fielding. Known as “Mr.360”, DE Villiers has clutched 23 catches in 25 innings in the T20 WC for Proteas. 3 catches in an innings have been his highest grab.
Kiwi opener Martin Guptill finds himself in the 2nd spot in the matter of grabbing the most catches in the T20 World Cup. Over the years Guptill has exhibited to the world that fielding and batting can be at the same level. The right-hand batsman has grasped 15 catches in 35 matches he has played to date.
Aussie opener David Warner has made a cut to this list of players with the most catches with 15 catches in 28 games. Warner is an explosive opener who begins smashing the bowlers from the first ball but when it comes to fielding, he stands under 30 yards. No wonder Warner has cemented a place on the list with his spectacular fielding.
Dwyane Bravo is the first all-rounder on the list. Bravo can contribute to all departments of the game brilliantly. We are all aware of his batting and bowling however not every one of us notices his efforts in fielding. Finding his name in this manner hints at his greatness in fielding.
Ross Taylor is the 2nd kiwi player on this list. Taylor is an awesome slip fielder in the longest format of the game. But he has not forgotten to impress fans in the shortest format of the game too. Taking 15 catches in 25 matches he is the 5th highest catch grabber in the T20 WC.
