    I wouldn't be wrong in saying he has been our best fielding coach to date. His successor has big boots to fill.

    I wonder what was the secret behind him being a successful fielding coach for us compared to someone like Julian Fountain?

    Good job by Steve but our improvement in fielding is a complete management effort, not just his. If there was no cultural change, it wouldn't have mattered regardless of Steve's excellence.

    He has done a superb job.

    He took no nonsense off the players and made them work hard - it didn't matter if you were a senior or junior, you were made to work.

    Working with Mickey Steve did an amazing job, the fielding has never been better.

    Thanks Steve, all the best for the future.

    Good job is an understatement, he has done a better job than could have been expected of him. Lets just hope all his hard work does not go wasted and the next coach and players can maintain the high levels and standards of fielding the team are currently operating at.

    Crucial time to loose him in the year running up to the WC, hope we do not drop our standards by then. We was saving a good amount of runs in the field in the champions trophy.

    I wonder if some routine methods are shared from previous coach to next, esp. in terms of fielding. Why break if something is not broken.

    Thanks for everything. Should improve our fielding in the long term, hopefully he can leave a legacy and has changed the fielding culture in the current team.

    Pak is definitely among the best catching sides in the world. Some work is needed to be done for a quicker arm release, especially in the deep. I have observed that we are not as fluid in picking the ball up and releasing it quick with accuracy to be a top fielding side. However, we have made a HUGE progress Vs what we used to be barring a few good fielders in the past.

    Kudos to the coaching staff for making us one of the best catching sides and a pretty good overall fielding side. Hopefully we will catch up to the better fielding sides soon.

    Had a hunch Rixon would do wonders with Pakistan. He left a lasting legacy of excellent fielding with the NZ side as well.
