IPL 2021: The current edition of the IPL is drawing towards a conclusion. There are only two matches left in the fourteenth edition of the Indian Premier League.
Royal Challengers Bangalore has crashed out of the IPL after a crushing defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders. Virat Kohli saw a major heartbreak yesterday as he will be going without an IPL trophy.
Whereas Chennai Super Kings has entered their ninth IPL final. This is by far the highest number of IPL finals a team has ever seen in the history of the tournament. Moreover, this will be MS Dhoni’s tenth IPL final.
All eyes will be on the match of Delhi Capitals vs Kolkata Knight Riders. This match will see one team going into the finals while the other will crash out of this edition of the IPL.
However, after the ongoing IPL, the T20 fever is not going to move towards a conclusion. The T20 World Cup 2021 will start on October 23 in the UAE and Oman. All the players will spend their time in the biosecure bubble.
IPL 2021: Mohammed Azharuddin names his top five fielders in the World right now
Former Indian captain and cricket legend Mohammed Azharuddin has named his favourite fielders in the World right now. Moreover, the element of fielding has become a very important factor in modern-day cricket.
Captains nowadays focus more on generating brilliant fielders. Plus the element of fitness has further strengthened the notion of fielding. Moreover, cricket history has also seen many great fielders like Shaun Pollack and Mohammed Kaif.
But the current set of fielders are a different breed altogether. Mohammed Azharuddin has named Ravindra Jadeja as his topmost pick in the list of five best fielders. The CSK player is no doubt one of the safest pairs of hands in World cricket.
The Indian international cricketer is everything that a captain wants to see in his player. Ravindra Jadeja is a top-class spinner, he is a top-class batsman and he is also an excellent fielder. However, Azharuddin picked Glenn Maxwell as his second pick.
Glenn Maxwell is also a very good fielder in the deep who gives his 110 per cent in every match. The Australian international is regarded as one of the best fielders currently in the Australian squad.
However, his other picks consisted of Ben Stokes, David Warner and Suresh Raina. Moreover, the pick of Suresh Raina did not go down well with the fans on social media.
Various fans trolled Mohammed Azharuddin for his pick of Suresh Raina. The CSK player has already retired from international cricket and he is nowhere near to the fitness like the good old days. Moreover, Suresh Raina’s fielding this season for Chennai Super Kings has been below par.
