Jonty doesn’t want to field at point anymore

South African fielding great Jonty Rhodes, who is a trustee of the Bob Woolmer Trust Fund and was to have been an integral part of Woolmer’s cricket academy, has spoken on the death of his mentor.

“Two of the greatest influences on cricket career and my life, Bob (Woolmer) and Hansie (Cronje), have both now passed away and I’m getting worried about the fact that they may be sitting in heaven picking their best XI.

“I’m just hoping my name’s not first out of the hat and that they choose someone else at backward point because I still have work to do down here. Tragically, Bob won’t be here to help me any more.”
