View Full Version : Fielding Positions in BD team

October 15, 2003, 01:47 PM
With reference to the upcoming series what are the favourite fielding spots (or are there any spots taken up by BD players based on their good performance in that area).
Third Man
Fine Leg
Mid Off
Mid wicket
Square leg
Generally crucial fielding places are taken up by experienced and good catchers. For example,
-Silly point and Covers are reserved for the best catchers in the team.
-Slips would also require good reaction.
-Mid off a place for captains to be positioned.

I know that Habibul Bashar fields at the slip region (because he has been dropping a lot of catches over the years in test cricket in that area).

We see Tapash Baisya or Mashrafee Murtoza sometimes fielding at the 3rd man or fine-leg area - when they're bowling, sometimes Mashrafee fields in the mid-off, long off area, Hannan fields at the mid off, long off, mid on, long on areas too (he misfielded in one day cricket).

Alok Kapali fields in gully or point position.

Rafique sometimes fields at the 3rd man or fine leg area.

I am not certain if Sujon always fields at either mid on or mid off area - where a captain should field.

Rafique has been fielding in the slips a bit recently
And Sujon often puts himself at cover or mid-wicket
