Former South African batsman Jonty Rhodes has thrown his hat for the India team fielding coach’s position, making him one of the most high profile candidate to have applied for the post. 'Yes, I have applied for the position of India’s new fielding coach. My wife and I love the country, and it has already given us so much, we have 2 children born in India,' Rhodes told a cricket website.
Rhodes is one of the exceptional fielders of his time and is best remembered for the flying ‘run-out to dismiss former Pakistan skipper Inzamam Ul-Haq during the 1992 World Cup. The 49-year-old South African was the fielding coach of Indian Premier League side Mumbai Indians for a long time.
