IPL has given plenty of immortal and amazing moments to cricket lovers. Be it ball being belted by batsmen or out of the box bowling by bowlers, we have always cherished and welcomed the innovations that IPL brought.
The third and probably the most crucial factor – fielding has been top-notch. Be it the rocket arm of Jadeja or diving Suresh Raina; many such moments have been ingrained in our memories forever. IPL has seen many amazing fielders over the years, but who has taken most catches in IPL? Following is the list of players (no wicket-keepers) who have taken most catches in IPL history:
1. Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina, probably India’s greatest fielder of all times, is the player with most catches in IPL history. With 102 catches so far, he has grabbed most no of catches in IPL.
Raina is quick on his feet and anticipates where a batsman might hit the ball; no wonder he is the player with the most number of catches in IPL. Raina stands at the peak of the most IPL catches list. With Suresh Raina opting to walk out of IPL 2020 due to personal reasons, the players next on this list will have a chance to become a player with the most number of catches in IPL.
2. AB de Villiers
The game has seen some amazing fielders, AB de Villiers, without a shadow of a doubt, is one of them. With 84 catches, he is second on the list of highest catches in IPL history.
AB’s incredible fitness levels and natural ability to anticipate make him almost a superman in the field. He has plucked the ball from the air many times on the boundary line. If he continues to play IPL for the next 2-3 seasons, he could hold the record for most catches by a player in IPL.
Royal Challengers Bangalore team will hope that this Superman from South Africa takes IPL highest catches this season.
3. Rohit Sharma
The third on the list of highest catches in IPL is current Mumbai Indians captain – Rohit Sharma with 83 catches. This Mumbaikar has a very safe pair of hands, and you will rarely see him drop a catch.
He always takes the crucial positions in the field, and it does not come as a surprise that he is on the list of players with IPL most catches in all seasons. During the starting overs, you will see him catching in the slips. In the death overs, he will be fielding on the boundary line.
Rohit is always on the top of the game when it comes to the crucial aspect of cricket – fielding. He will also look to lead the strong Mumbai Indians side to an IPL glory in the upcoming 2020 season.
4. Kieron Pollard
The fourth on the list of highest catches in IPL is West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard with 82 catches. A ball rarely seems to go past this fielder, as he is always on the top of his game in the field.
Kieron Pollard, with amazing athletic abilities, saves plenty of runs in the field. This power-hitting batsman is an asset to the Mumbai Indians team due to his ability to change the course of the game with bat and in the field.
He can win you games alone on his fielding abilities. Mumbai Indians will rely heavily on Kieron Pollard in their quest for IPL glory in 2020.
5. Dwayne Bravo
The fifth on the list of IPL most catches in all season is the West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo with 74 catches. He is often seen controlling the boundary line and has saved plenty of runs for Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Lions.

We hope to see some amazing pieces of fielding from Dwayne Bravo in the upcoming IPL 2020 season.
