Birmingham: Jun 16, 2013
 
India captain MS Dhoni on Saturday lauded his team’s fielding performance against Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013, saying that they are currently the world’s top fielding side.
 
“The whole team is doing really well in all the three departments. We are the top fielding side in world cricket as of now; we need to keep the intensity up,” said Dhoni after India beat their arch-rivals by eight wickets at Edgbaston on June 15 to finish top of Group B.
 
India had caused two outstanding run-outs of Pakistani batsmen during the match.
 
The wicket-keeper batsmen also lauded swing bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the presentation ceremony.
 
“Bhuvneshwar bowls in very good areas and can swing the ball. He’s someone who has given us the early breakthroughs. (It is) good to see him bowl well.”
 
India will take on the second placed team in Group A in the semi-final at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on June 20.
