Legendary batsman Rhodes applied for India fielding coach position

A functionary member of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed former South Africa batsman Jonty Rhodes applied for India’s fielding coach position. The BCCI member continued that Rhodes is qualified for the position because he worked with Mumbai Indians (MI) for nine seasons.

“Yes, Rhodes has applied and while it is true that he hasn't coached any international team, he has been involved with Mumbai Indians for nine seasons,” stated the BCCI functionary member who wished to remain anonymous in an interview with IANS. “As per the eligibility criteria, you need to have worked with an IPL team for three seasons if not an international team.”

“His involvement with MI till the last season will also come in handy if he does get the position because he understands how Indians function and what are their areas of strengths and weaknesses,” continued the BCCI functionary member.

Meanwhile, India is currently preparing for their T20I, ODI, and Test series of matches against West Indies. The T20I games begin on August 3 at Central Broward Regional Park in Florida.

The Men in Blue’s tour of West Indies comes after their World Cup campaign failure where they were knocked out of semi-finals. Host nation England won the finals for the first time when they beat New Zealand in the Super Overs. If you want to know more about this tournament, check out Betwala’s article.
