Jonty Rhodes

Wisden Cricketer of the Year 1999
Jonathan Neil Rhodes (born 27 July 1969 in Pietermaritzburg, Natal, South Africa), better known as 'Jonty Rhodes', was a South African cricketer, who was especially noted for his feats whilst fielding. A right handed batsman, he represented the South African national side in both the Test match and one-day international forms of the game. During his career he also played first-class cricket for Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, KwaZulu-Natal and Natal. He usually fielded at cover or point. (see Fielding positions) He is not only noted as a fantastic fielder, one of the best fielders in cricketing history, but also as a quick runner between the wickets and a batsman who likes to keep the scoreboard ticking over.
Pakistan Cricket Board hired Rhodes for a 15-day period as a Fielding Coach to improve their team's fielding before touring England in June 2006. In all Jonty Rhodes had played in 245 One-Day International matches for his country, in which he was a great encourager and inspiration to his team mates around him. He played in a total of four World Cups, the 1992 Cricket World Cup, 1996 Cricket World Cup, 1999 Cricket World Cup and the 2003 Cricket World Cup in his home country. He will be remembered for many brilliant pieces of fielding.
