Jonty Rhodes, Cricket at Quarantine Centre

“This is why I love India!” Jonty Rhodes shares a video clip of people playing cricket in quarantine centre

Former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes’ love for India is no secret; he has even named his younger daughter India – a gesture that was seen as an effort to strengthen his connection with the country.

On Wednesday, Rhodes reaffirmed his fondness for the nation by sharing a video clip on Twitter, revealing why he loves India so much.


In the video, which has gone viral, people in a COVID-19 quarantine centre are seen playing cricket to keep their spirits up.

“People ask me often; “what is it about India that I love so much” Need I say any more?”, Rhodes captioned the video.


In the 29-second video, people are seen playing cricket in a quarantine centre wearing face masks. Some people can also be seen sitting on the hospital beds watching others play.

Chairs have been used as wickets, and people are seen playing the sport with great enthusiasm. The clip shows the batsman taking a run after hitting a shot. The fielders are seen running to get the ball.

Rhodes shared the video after responding to a tweet from the account of European Cricket that announced the Dream11 European Cricket Series tripleheader in collaboration with the Swedish Cricket Federation. The Proteas star commented that it was great to see cricket matches on the go again and “awesome” to see the game growing.
