We are all aware that we are just a couple of days away from IPL 2020 season to begin and are very much excited to encounter yet another amazing IPL season. A wise man once said that “A good batsman will complete his duty by scoring good amount of runs, a bowler will complete his duty by taking wickets but a good fielder will always save runs for your team”. Every team has got some good fielding additions to their team who always perform the best at their end preventing the extra runs. We enjoy some good level of performances from fielders like Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja every year.
