6. Steven Smith, Australia
Steven Smith, the shy Australian boy who will now lead Australia in all three formats is at number 6 on the top fielders currently in the world. A world beater batsman, an able spinner and to add to that resume, a magnificent fielder, he has all traits to be an Australian grade. First bursting on the scene as a leg spinner who could bat a bit, Smith is one of the most alert fielders mostly guarding the cover area. An example of his sharp-witted thinking can be seen in a match in Abu Dhabi versus Pakistan, where he ran from the first slip to become a leg slip in anticipation of seeing the batsmen positioning himself for a paddle sweep. The incident left many baffled and confused, but those who know Smith are rather used to such an anti-climax on his part. Now that Steven Smith taken the leadership position of the team, more such instances can be expected in the future.
