Former South African batsman, Jonty Rhodes who is considered to be one of the finest fielders of his time has seeked the opportunity to apply for post of Fielding Coach for the Indian team.
While speaking to INS, a senior BCCI official informed of Rhode being a candidate for the post of the Fielding Coach. Rhodes told CricketNext, “I have seen from my time in India that parents don’t allow their children to take risks. I have a vision that would take the Indian team to the lowest drop catch percentage and taking their fielding skills to a higher level.”
The India’s Head coach Ravi Shastri, Bowling coach Bharat Arun, Batting coach Sanjay Bangar and the Fielding coach Sridhar are on their 45 days extension after the World Cup and will be available for the team on West Indies tour. As per BCCI, the current team of coaches and support staff need not reapply for the posts as they will get the privilege of getting considered by default.
