Re: Fielding Statistics

Fielding statistics may eliminate a degree of the subjectivity. A dropped catch will be a dropped catch whether it is a dolly in the slips or point just getting fingertips to a middled drive.
But that is to some extent true of batting and bowling statistics too - a hundred is a hundred whether it's scored on a shirtfront against a depleted bowling attack, or at Sabina Park against the Windies in the 80s. A wicket is a wicket whether its the ball of the century or a wide long hop that snares the batsman.
