Answer:
We are going to award "MVP or Most valuable Player" in each dept, batting, bowling & fielding.

We don't have fielders who fail miserably !

The reason you hear that batting is more technical than bowling or fielding is for two big reasons:
1. The people who are talking about it (ie commentators, journalists administrators) ALL used to be batsmen, so will always make out that their skill was the most difficult to execute simply to show everyone ho good they obviously were ! (If you dont believe me check each commentator and see who was a batter and who was a bowler, then you will see !!!)
2. Because Cricket has not kept detailed statistics for any of the 3 skills, until just recently, batting was the easiest to keep track of and create statistics for. This was followed by bowling. Fielding still has not got a full statistical breakdown available, which is why I created fielding analysis software for just that purpose.

Fielding is like both Batting and bowling combined. It has a similar physical feel to bowling, with close fielding feeling a little more like batting. But it is also like batting because as with batting needing you to master a whole repertoire of shots, fielding needs you to master a whole repertoire of skills.

Fielding has been the poor relation because ignorant players and coaches have not fully understood the concept and the importance. Take heed all . . . Fielding is just as important as batting and bowling. Treat it thus or suffer the consequences of ignorance !
Coach,

I'll take your word over the commies anyday...

just in case you were wondering....Bumble is always on about this on tv....

nd coach I in no way was trying to imply that fielding is less important....it is as important as you have mentioned 'saved runs' in the field are akin to scoring those runs while batting

While reading your posts, I was just wondering, do you have any plan to write a book on fielding (like Ian wrote one on fast bowling)? It would be a great read, I'm sure!

And if you are interested in translating I recommend babubangla bhai for it. (And if the deal works out, may be a little cha-ching, bling bling this way? Perhaps 15%.... j/k! )

Answer:
Lots of factors . . .Speed of delivery, pace of pitch, distance from bat, deviation off bat etc

But here is an approximation:

Bowler bowls 90mph ball (hand speed) which when it hits the pitch, the the edge is now actually travelling at 70mph. Wk / slip is standing 20 metres back. Ball is travelling at 70mph or 32 metres / second. 20 divided by 32 gives 0.62 seconds from edge to hands !

For a spinner reduce speeds to around 55mph - 65mph (27 metres / sec) but also reduce distance to around 3 metres for a wk and around 6 metres for a slip.
3 metres & 27m/s gives a reaction time of 0.12 seconds !

Hence you cannot judge wk standing up to a spinner in the same way you judge a slip fielder as the distances & reaction times are different. If ball deviates more than a fraction, he simply cannot adjust quickly enough.

Coach Fountain:

Speaking of your moniker...is the practice of direct throws/shy at the stumps as much emphasized as other aspects of the fielding? Since any skill can be mastered and developed, do players spend great deal of time on throwing or you have a different philosophy?

Edit: It would be great asset if all the players could develop great throwing arms.

Thanks.

Woah, so are there anyways I can increase my reaction times? Like how would you do it for our feilders?

Answer:
With the advent of television replay & UDRS etc, gone are the days of an umpire giving a runout purely by eye as there is usually too much riding upon the decision. Simply put, the time it takes a player to catch a slightly offline throw and then break the stumps will allow the batter those precious milliseconds to continue sprinting / diving / reaching the bat across the line. We are now dealing in 1/10ths of a second, a single frame shot may decide either way.

This is why we have been working recently on adjusting how the player takes those slightly offline throws (& I am only talking a few inches not feet !) and then breaks the stumps accordingly without wasting any extra time.

So yes, throwing accuracy is massively important, that is why I have been working on the players mechanics, to improve accuracy + Power + reduce injuries + reduce execution time.

Not really had the opportunity, unfortunately, but have recently bought a nice camera and have started compiling some excellent shots of Dhaka / Chittagong life and Bangladesh cricket !
