Jonty Rhodes

Cricket Coach | Commentator | Fielder Par Excellence | Business Coach


Jonty Rhodes, the former South African cricketer and currently a coach and a cricket commentator, is considered to be the greatest fielder of all time.

Rhodes made his Test debut against India in the first Test of the ‘Friendship Tour’ at his home ground in Kingsmead, Durban in 1992 & his One Day International debut against Australia in South Africa's opening match of the 1992 Cricket World.

Rhodes shot to fame after South Africa's fifth game of the World Cup, against Pakistan on 8 March 1992 at the Brisbane Cricket Ground when he took a dive to break the stumps and effect the run out. It is still considered as one of the most spectacular feats of that World Cup.

He is currently the coach for Sweden’s national cricket team.
