2. Glenn Maxwell 9/10
If one has to choose the best fielder of this generation, Glenn Maxwell will be there at the top alongside Jadeja. He gets 0.5 points less than the Indian because of his absence from the Australian team in the last few series.
With 0.66 catch in every game, Maxell has the joint-best catch-per-match ratio with New Zealand‘s Ross Taylor in the history of the One Day International (ODI) cricket. But his numbers were achieved in less than half of the matches that Taylor has played so far.
What makes him a more special cricketer is his ability to bat and bowl with equal dominance and continue the same intensity while fielding as well. The Australian team have traditionally been a superior fielding side and the current team are no different. Thus to be a standout fielder amid other great fielders is no mean task.
