The IPL is just around the corner and once again the spotlight shifts to a few players, who would shoulder the responsibility of taking their team forward. It is not just batsmen, bowlers, wicket-keepers or all-rounders that can change the fortunes of a team, but a great fielding unit too can do wonders. Historically too, a team that fields well together, consistently, have had more chances to win.
