The key technical grounds behind missed catches and what practice a young cricketer needs to undergo to attain a good hand in fielding. All the audiences are aware that with the effective fielding of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he earned the captaincy of the Indian team and Chennai Super Kings. 

Maninder Singh participated in 35 Test matches and 59 One Day Internationals to represent India from 1982 till the present time. During an interview, MS Dhoni shares the mantra for fielding. He stated that there are numerous reasons. Sometimes, missing the catch can be because of the lights. Further, he said that he used to tell most of the time that it is because of the lights. Under the lights, you predict the ball late. That is the reason. There is a solution for everything. The solution is only practice. The more you practice, the better you become.

Further, he stated that he remembered when he was 15 years old and got into the Delhi Ranji team, Maddi paa (Madan Lal) explained to him one thing that he still remembers. He stated that- ‘fielding is the one department where you don’t need luck. Further, he stated that the more effort you put into a practice session, the better you will become. Wind and light will always be there. Practice is the only solution to this. That’s the only way out. That’s what made MS Dhoni’s fielding better. 

There are many sports in the world. Some people likes football, and others likes cricket or basketball. But I love to play cricket because it is a game of gentalman. I am a left-handed batsman and a left-arm orthodox bowler. I played an inter-college tournaments. Also, I represented my college cricket team as vice captain. Ms. Dhoni is my idol, and the Chennai Super Kings are my all-time favourite franchise.
