Fielding has always been significant in cricket like batting and bowling. Because it is not assured that a bowler or batsman will take wickets or make runs in every match. But fielding is completely in each individual’s hand. So it makes a huge difference in a match. Good fielding can make or break a match. We have seen many times that some run-out miss or catch miss has cost a team very much. Like in the 2011 Cricket World Cup Pakistan missed 6 catches of Sachin Tendulkar and he departed after scoring 85 runs. As a result, Pakistan lost the semi-final and got eliminated from the World Cup. Today we are gonna discuss the players with the most run outs in IPL history.
