    Fielders play a very significant role in any format of the game and can literally change the destiny of the game. A missed catch can cause a lot of damage to the team and mar their winning chance. In the T20I format, the best fielders are chosen on the boundary line where they are most likely to take a catch.

    In this article, we’ll be talking about the top five fielders in the history of IPL.

    The second player to feature on this list is West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard. His height helps him in plucking up catches and this is also the reason why he has mostly seen fielding at the long-on or long-off region. He has taken 96 catches in the 178 innings in IPL.

    3. AB de Villiers – 90

    Rohit Sharma apart from being the most successful captain of IPL is a great fielder too. He has taken 90 catches in the 213 games he has played so far. His catch per innings ratio of 0.422 is a good rate since he fields in those positions where the chances of getting a catch are very less.

    5. Virat Kohli – 84 catches
