One of the finest fielders in the world Suresh Raina was lauded by former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes.

Rhodes named Raina as one of the five best fielders he has ever seen. He also included fielders like Paul Collingwood and Herschelle Gibbs who were outstanding in the inner circle. It was near to impossible for the batsman to pierce them. Apart from these two, AB de Villiers and Australia's Andrew Symonds are the two fielders Rhodes think were absolutely wonderful.

Even though he included some of the outstanding fielders in the list, Raina was kept above all and he is thankful for that

The 32-year-old called Rhodes his inspiration and wrote, "So glad to have retained my number 1⃣ spot on your list all these years, @JontyRhodes8 ! You've always inspired me by setting the highest standards on the field!"

Raina has taken 102 catches in One Day Internationals. In T20I and Tests, he took 42 and 23 catches respectively.
