The standard fielding positions in cricket for a right-handed batsman; the positions are reversed for a left-handed batsman. The spots are only indicative, as fielders may stand in any part of the ground. Only nine fielders are available in addition to the bowler and wicketkeeper, so there are always many unprotected areas.

Update of miljoshi's Image:Cricket fielding positions.svg by me, to fix a couple of typos and add short mid-wicket. Specifically:

   * Closer in -> nearer the batsman
   * very close in -> very near the batsman
   * toward 90 deg to the pitch -> level with batsman's crease
   * 1s, 2s, 3 etc -> 1, 2, 3 etc 
   * Mid on, mid off -> Mid-on, Mid-off (there's absolutely no consensus anywhere - midwicket, mid-wicket, and mid wicket all seem equally used, but at least we can be consistent within the diagram, hyphenating everywhere)
   * Brackets around runner: (R*)
   * Add short mid-wicket: "Short" positioned between mid-wicket and silly mid-on.
   * Get rid of circles around batsman and non-striker (they're not described in the legend, don't seem to mean much?)
   * cover sweeper -> sweeper cover (more frequent on google)
   * Add stumps
   * Change = to : in glossary.
