Iím calling this one. You cannot blame an outfield for poor catching/fielding. Not having that.

Disagree regarding the fielding part. Iíve seen plenty of outfields that simply arenít fit for purpose. For those less skilled, having an outfield with the ball popping up all the over the place is absolutely to blame for poor fielding in certain circumstances. The post did state lower leagues which is a fair comment to make imo. Sadly the majority of club cricketers arenít lucky enough to play on good outfields - even in the WEPL some of our opposition have shocking grounds quite frankly.

@Tailendfielder you're a lucky man if you've never played on that kind of outfield

You need to play in a midweek parks league down this way!
 
You don't truly appreciate a decent ground until you've arrived at a game, had the clear some youngsters having a BBQ off the square (that looks like the outfield with some lines painted on it), then you're scared to dive in the field in case you land on some broken glass or a used syringe.

I love Southampton...
