Top Ten Fielders of  in Test Cricket

New Zealand plays fewer test matches and they get to play more of One day Internationals and Twenty-Twenty matches.

Fielding is very good but when compared to other nations such as Australia and South Africa, they lack the sparkle or the lustre which is required in test matches. This may have to do with the fact that it’s the longest version of the game, going up to five days.

They have good senior players in the game, which is an added point for them. There are some players in the team like Jesse Ryder and Scott Styris, who are not great in their fitness levels, but since they are equally committed to the game, that doesn’t come in the way.

1. SP Fleming
2. MD Crowe

4. JV Coney
5. DL Vettori
6. BA Young
7. LRPL Taylor
8. BE Congdon
