Virat Kohli’s exceptional fielding prowess has made him the standout player, contributing significantly to India’s unbeaten start in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup over the first 13 days of the tournament.

Kohli has taken three catches in three matches, trailing behind Matt Henry and David Warner, but the true extent of his fielding impact goes beyond mere statistics. Kohli’s exceptional contribution includes saving runs and applying pressure on the opposition, and his overall score of 22.30 points places him at the top of fielding impact in the World Cup. Among his closest contenders are two experienced players: former England captain Joe Root with four catches and the Australian veteran David Warner, who leads with five catches.

In the top 10 fielding performances at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, Pakistan, New Zealand, Australia, and India each have two players featured, while India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja sits in the 11th place. India has taken 14 catches in the tournament, coupled with 10 runs saved, 16 pressure acts, and four successful throws. Notably, India has dropped only two catches in their first three matches, second only to reigning champions England, who have dropped just one.

India has been recognizing their best fielder in each match of the tournament with a ‘Gold Medal.’ Virat Kohli secured the award during India’s win over Australia, and all-rounder Shardul Thakur earned it with a superb catch against Afghanistan. KL Rahul claimed the honor after the match against arch-rival Pakistan. This practice highlights India’s commitment to fielding excellence throughout the tournament.
