IND vs ENG: Fielding and Poor Catching persist a burden for Team India despite win over formats

While Team India have been splendid with the bat and ball, they have run between being normal to now and again miserably poor in the outfield and that will be a reason for stress in front of significant world competitions beginning with the World T20 not long from now.

India has had extraordinary 4-5 months in worldwide cricket. From their notable Test arrangement win in Australia to a range across tournaments against England at home grounds, the group has been splendid, uncovering one star after the other with commitments both from their accomplished players just as all the debutantes. While India has been uncommon with the bat and in their bowling, there is one territory of concern that stays to be tended to and which nearly cost them the ODI arrangement against England. India has gone between being normal to at times pitifully poor in the outfield and that will be a reason for stress in front of significant world competitions beginning October this year.

Team India missed as many as 4 catches in the One Day International decider in MCA, Pune on Sunday. Ben Stokes was bestowed a huge rescue when the reasonable fielders in the Team India XI, Hardik Pandya missed a sitter at mid-off of the bowling of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Stokes was on 15 and went on to score 35.


India was so poor with their balling that it even got a general without a care in the world Ravi Shastri out of his seat irate and upset. They were fortunate that the bowlers held their nerve at the passing to pull off a seven-run triumph. Yet, on the off chance that the getting doesn't improve and the group continues to drop carts at vital crossroads in a match then as a rule it will come to nibble them, all the more so in the huge matches and knockouts of large competitions.

India's balling and fielding has been shy of satisfactory guidelines all through the England tournament. They have missed various run-out possibilities with terrible and off base tosses even from short proximity. The getting has been wretched and even though there have been a couple of blinders various simple gets have been dropped.

India had an awful day on the field in the arrangement opener of the Border Gavaskar Trophy in Adelaide as well. They gave the Mr Consistent of Australia, Marnus Labuschagne two respites from the get-go in his innings.

India's outstanding assets in batting and their freshly discovered ability in bowling have acted the hero of the group on numerous occasions in any event, when the third part of the game – their On-field fielding, getting a general order on the field has been poor and well underneath approaches. It has included additional pressure on the batsmen and the bowlers to convey and compensate for the differential.

However, for Team India to be the world-beating unit consistently, they need to start acting responsibly in the field as well. The batting and bowling can't compensate for the under-standard exhibition constantly.
