Cricket legend to promote South Africa holidays in India

Legendary cricketer Jonty Rhodes is revered all around the world, but he is particularly popular in India and his home nation South Africa.

He made his international test debut against the Indians in 1992 and he went on to forge a hugely successful career in the sport.

Rhodes - who hails from Pietermaritzberg, Natal - now works as a fielding coach for Indian Premier League team Mumbai Indians and tourism chiefs in South Africa are keen to see the talented star make the most of his links between the two countries.

It has been confirmed that Rhodes is more than happy to promote South Africa holidays in the Asian nation, much to the delight of Hanneli Slabber - the country head of South African Tourism in India.

"Being a part of the Mumbai Indians team, Jonty has a great fan following in India and is extremely popular and loved cricketer," he commented.
