  46. 46. Q23 Two crucial fielding positions explained by our expert Akash Chopra: “A key difference between fielding at X and Y is the way the fielder protects himself when the ball is hit. At X you must go down as much as possible and become as small as you can: batsmen rarely try to keep the ball down while pulling or sweeping. At Y the fielder must jump to defend, because batsmen rarely try to hit the ball in the air on the off side. They aim to keep the ball along the ground, and hence you can avoid the line of the ball by jumping.”
