Yahoo Cricket ropes in Jonty Rhodes as analyst for World Cup

MUMBAI: Yahoo India has roped in South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes as its World Cup analyst for the coverage on Yahoo Cricket.  


As part of this, Rhodes will present his take on the World Cup action, as it unfolds, through the pre and post-game analysis.

With in-depth stories, expert analysis, player profiles, game statistics, videos, match forecasts and his perspective on the game to make sense of it all, Yahoo Cricket will keep fans on top of all the cricket news, opinions and insights this season.


Rhodes said, “Cricket in India creates such a high – whether it's being played or talked about. With Yahoo Cricket, which is hugely popular with cricket fans not just in India but across the globe, I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts with passionate cricket lovers the world over, and also to hearing back from them. Together, this World Cup is going to be much more fun.”


Yahoo India vice president and managing director Gurmit Singh added, “Jonty is one of the most respected names in World Cricket, well loved by cricket fans in India. We believe that his connect with users and his original voice – brought alive through videos, in-depth stories and chat opportunities for fans, across devices – will make Yahoo Cricket the digital hub where users can converge to enjoy the World Cup.”


Widely regarded as the first fielding superstar of the cricketing world, Rhodes has enjoyed outstanding success throughout his career, in which he played 52 Test matches and 245 One Day Internationals. His first shot at fame was during the 1992 World Cup, when he flew through the air to memorably run out Pakistan’s Inzamam-ul-Haq, thus creating one of cricket’s most iconic moments. 


Rhodes has served as South Africa’s fielding coach. He is also an advisor-cum-fielding coach at the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
