#ClassicCatches and #FantasticFielding at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015

Here at Crazy Catch we love seeing amazing pieces of fielding or a great catch … for us they are just as important as a 5 wicket haul or a century as after all its “catches that win matches” so the saying goes.

What better time to take a great catch, than in an ICC World Cup and what an amazing tournament it is shaping up to be down in Australia and New  Zealand – the birthplace of the Crazy Catch.

Crazy Catch will be helping you relive those special #ClassicCatches again and again this tournament…. you can see them on our various social media accounts including

Brilliant fielding is catching on … with the World Cup looming, Chris Taylor says “England are improving”

The ICC World Cup 2015 tournament gets under way at the weekend and fielding is likely to be a major factor in the results of some of the matches.

And Eoin Morgan’s England team have looked sharp in the field of late, dropping just four catches in the recent Tri-series and taking all their opportunities during Monday’s nine-wicket thrashing of the West Indies in a warm-up match.

Taylor is happy with how the side are performing in the field ahead of Saturday’s eagerly-awaited clash with Australia.

“We certainly need to improve and we are steadily improving,” said the former Gloucestershire man on Tuesday. We’re very pleased. The general mood in the camp is that we have improved, and we are every day. Yesterday’s performance was a key one for us, we took all our chances again. We took some good chances there.”

“The Big Bash final the other day was lost on a fielding error. The margins in international sport are getting smaller and smaller, so any area we can improve we’re desperate to do it.”

“There’s been an improvement since Sri Lanka and, going into the World Cup, we feel that we’re in the right place at the moment. If you look at any iconic games or Test series, those catches, those are what you remember, the run-out opportunities are what you remember. The Big Bash final the other day was lost on a fielding error. The margins in international sport are getting smaller and smaller, so any area we can improve we’re desperate to do it.”

Taylor says England coach Peter Moores and his assistant Paul Farbrace are also passionate about improving the team’s fielding…

“We actively review it just as much as we do our batting and bowling and we feel it can have an impact on the game, those game-changing moments,” he said.

“It’s made my job 10 times more easy. Mooresy is very passionate about fielding, as is Farby. They see the importance.”

Chris Taylor: England’s improved fielding could help them go further than expected at the World Cup. “Every team they have coached before, it has been their role to run the fielding. We’re over-staffed in many ways because we’ve got Mooresy and myself and Farby, all with a keen interest in that side of the game. “It makes reviewing interesting because we share a lot of ideas.”

Taylor, who took over as England fielding coach at the start of last summer, is featured in this fielding master-class video from the Shropshire Cricket Board using the Crazy Catch in his session … the product has been well loved by England players and coaches over the years.
