Apart from batting and bowling in cricket, fielding is also an area which has seen great development over the years. What could have been termed a special catch a decade ago is now being treated as a usual task. From boundary line catching to fielding inside the 30-yard circle, the players give it their all in a bid to keep their team ahead in the game. Tim David's catch to dismiss Daniel Lawrence in the quarter-final match between Lancashire and Essex in the ongoing T20 Blast is a telling example of how the cricketers have raised the bar of fielding over the years.
Lawrence tried to hit a half volley from outside the off stump over the mid-on fielder for a boundary but David's catch poured cold water on his plans. Lawrence shuffled in his crease to hit the ball really hard but David jumped in air to perfection and completed the catch with utmost ease.
