Jonty Rhodes is commonly regarded as the greatest fielder in the modern era of cricket, if not all time and on Thursday (July 27), the former South African cricketer celebrated his 48th birthday.
Wishes came pouring for Rhodes from cricket fraternity, friends and fans on social media. But the best birthday message for the current fielding coach of IPL Team Mumbai Indians, came from Indian dashing all-rounder Yuvraj Singh.
On Rhodes’ birthday, Yuvraj wished the flying Protean from Natal with a tweet that read “Happy birthday Jonty singh @JontyRhodes8 the flying machine I grew up watching and was a honour to take his catch in similar fashion 2002 ct”.
