    Well, i consider Ponting to be better than Rhodes. Surprisingly he doesn't find a place in the list.

    Good list but I think Ravinder Jadeja is better than Raina.

    Suresh Raina number 1 fielder? lmao. I think Rhodes must have developed some special friendship with raina because even my Indian colleagues will admit that this was a bit over the top from the legend

    No Azhar lol But I remember two of the easiest catches shelled by Ahar in same innings in SA. It was like someone lobbing the ball. But we were not aware of his fixing scandals though

    This.

    On top of my head, following will come way ahead of Raina.

    1) Solkar (short leg)
    2) Azhar (anywhere in field)
    3) R Jadeja (anywhere in field)
    4) Gavaskar (slips)
    5) Yuvraj (point)
    6) Dravid/Rahane (in slips)

    Yup he was the best Indian fielder of that time.. I would rate him slightly better than yuvi.. However R Jadeja is best ever Indian fielder IMO.. Peak Raina probably is second, with Kaif being 3rd.

    Yuvi, Azhar, robin Singh, pandya are all very good but slightly behind the three I mentioned.

    Lol what rubbish Raina at his peak not the chubby Raina of today was a top notch fielder..

    1. R Jadeja
    2. Raina
    3. Kaif

    These are our top 3.. Then the rest you mentioned follow.. You have mentioned specialist in one position but Raina, Kaif and Jadeja are all rounders in fielding.. easily our top 3 ever.

    He is not talking about all time fielders. He is talking about best fielders at a point in time. Jadeja came onto international scene much after Raina. When Raina came in, he was the best fielder in Indian team .

    People's judgement might get clouded by his misdeeds, but Azhar was such a natural fielder in any position he fielded. I still remember the catch he pouched in slips to dismiss last WI batsman in that B&H Tri series game (at Gabba?) in '91-92 and helping India tie that game despite being bowled out for 126!

    Not only that, I think Rhodes was asked who are top 5 fielders at that time. Collingwood, Gibbs, Raina were playing at the same time. He was not talking about who is the best fielder so far in history of a Nation.

    Jonty is not anti-Pakistan, he is just very pro-Indian.

    His daughter was born in India and he named her India.

    During his stint with PTV Sports, he got upset with Dr. Nauman for enjoying Indiaís defeat to some opponent that I cannot recall now.

    His stint in the IPL has changed his life. He probably didnít earn a lot of money during his time in international cricket, which is why he ended up work for a bank after retiring, but he is now set for life thanks to IPL.

    His love for India is very understandable. At least he doesnít come across as a hypocrite like Hayden though.

    It's his list, so can't argue but I myself rate Mark Waugh DEFINITELY a better all-round fielder than Rhodes and probably Ponting as well. Both were much better slip fielder and better thrower, also both were brilliant in covering 3 areas of fielding - close in catcher (Slip, silly point, short leg), inner ring (point, extra cover, short mid wicket) or boundary. I think, Rhodes was a sort of specialist at point and being Hockey player, his reflexes and anticipation was brilliant, but Mark was a better grabber of the ball while Ponting used to field at point as well and his pick-up towards throwing position was better; Ponting probably had the best direct hit ratio in the game.

    My top 5 will be

    1. Mark Waugh
    2. Ponting
    3. Rhodes
    4. Symonds
    5. Really tough - I probably will go for Hooper or Azhar; both were brilliant all-round fielders and top class slip fielder, Azhar was probably the best slipper against spin.

    Did Hayden used harbor some kind of dislike towards Pakistan?
