Pakistani fielders have caught the most catches in the World Cup? The performance of the Pakistan cricket team in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup in India has not been impressive yet, but the green shirts have become the team with the highest catches in this mega event.

The performance of Pakistan’s batsmen and bowlers in the World Cup has not been satisfactory, but the Pakistani team is at the top in fielding.
