The veteran leggie said the 1985 team was one of the best fielding teams India has produced and it set a pattern for the teams after that.

"[Captain] Sunil Gavaskar told us that fielding and training are compulsory while batting and bowling are optional, so that is why I think we were so good in the field in that tournament," Sivaramakrishnan said.
