Jonty Rhodes names Suresh Raina as his best fielder in modern era.

Former South African player Jonty Rhodes revealed his top five fielders in the modern era cricket on Wednesday. In a candid chat with the International Cricket Council ,  Rhodes put India’s Suresh Raina at numero uno.

At number five is Andrew Symonds from Australia, followed by South Africa’s Herschelle Gibbs. England’s Paul Collingwood is at number three, while Mr 360 AB de Villiers is at the second spot.
Raina is considered one of the better Indian fielders, and now Rhodes who has also coached Mumbai Indians in the IPL, says that the Chennai Super Kings star is by far the best Indian fielder he has seen.

I have been a massive fan of Suresh Raina, for forever; ever since he started playing, Rhodes told ICC website.

I know what the conditions of the fields are in India, and every time he practices, every time he dives, it’s gonna be so much of heat. He doesn’t even give a second hesitation of should I have dived or shouldn’t have dived, he added.

Commenting on Raina’s skills as a fielder who is brilliant anywhere on the ground, Jonty said that the Uttar Pradesh-man always goes for the ball irrespective of the situation.

Rhodes has been a long time admirer of Suresh Raina. According to Rhodes what sets him apart from others on the ground is that he never thinks before he dives and neither does he hesitate even while playing in torrid weather conditions. Raina follows Rhodes’ philosophy of ‘if you never go, you will never know.
