    Jonty Rhodes as India's fielding coach?

    Jonty Rhodes as India's fielding coach?

    He can surely do a lot better than John Wright. Make him the main coach! His experience and expertise can convert this team into a tournament-winning outfit.

    Yeah, its good that Jonty will have some input to do with Indian fielding/fitness alongside Andrew Leipus, John Wright and Greg King.

    Wow Rhodes, Leipus, Wright and King now that is a pretty good quartet.

    I doubt if Greg is really as good as his predecessor- the Indian team was very fit with Adrian as fitness trainer, but once he left, and Greg took over, injuries started raining in buckets.

    Hopefully Dalmiya won't let him go as he did Leipus, Reid and Akram. Hmmm....'Reed' is back...

    It is good that he is using his expertise to use to help teach others, although i would have hoped he would have kept it closer, i.e. be fielding coach for South Africa, and to help Gibbs out of his current form slump.

    How can you even think about removing Wright as coach? He has contributed more than anyone else in India's rise upwards.

    Fair enough comment, but Jonty Rhodes seems like the kind of person who would be a good coach. Something about him, seems like he would do a lot of good.

    Fielding is something very basic- he can get the players' basics right.

    What rise upward? Inched upward, and crashed downward each time. They have not won many tournaments with him as coach- they have won more with Wadekar.

    Yes but under all the Indian coaches they had -- India could hardly win away. Weren't nearly all of Ajit Wadekar's wins on the subcontinent ?
    At least under John Wright they have secured some test wins abroad.
    In 1995, 16 commandos of the GRU Spetsnatz went
    head to head against 16 US ARMY Rangers in Alaska in ten tests of physical strength and endurance.
    Final Result: Spetsnatz 9 US Army Rangers 1

    So Jonty Rhodes, SA's and maybe the World's best ever fielder could be India's fielding coach, while SA are struggling in the field.

    Oh the irony. Let's lace it with a bit of sarcasm shall we. Ah, but the administrators know best. The side's fielding is great right now anyway.

    I agree with the sentiments you display so passionately 99%.

    Just one small point - the world's greatest-ever fielder was a DIFFERENT South African.

    The main problem with teh Indian fielding is in the mind, they get far worse when it gets tough for the most part.

    the reason Jonty is such a good fielder is that he is passionate about it, therefore practices it alot, works very hard at it and loves doing it in games.
