"MS… when he was captain, he led the fielding. And the running between the wicket was to me, an eye opener. MS said that ‘two things that are non-negotiable for me are fielding and running between the wicket’. And that is something that still holds true.

So that is the kind of importance that was laid on fielding,” Sridhar told Cricket (dot) com website.
