#5 Fielder nutmeg

Embarrassing moments for a cricketer mis-field through-the-legs

A fielder nutmeg is a situation when a regulation save for the fielder results into a misfield as the ball goes through his legs. It is generally due to the weaker fielders in the side, but it can also happen to the best of the lot, too.

Slow reaction, taking eyes off the ball or misjudging the pace at which the ball is coming are some of the reasons which show an irresponsible behavior of the fielder and causes fielder nutmeg. But whatever the reason is, the scenario can not only be embarrassing for the fielder but can also draw the temper of the bowler and the skipper.
