SLC is in talks with Jonty Rhodes, the former South Africa batsman and current Mumbai Indians fielding coach, to work with the Sri Lankan team for a ten-day stint in the lead-up to the home series against Pakistan in June.

“Jonty has given us an offer and we hope to talk to him and finalize the deal,” a sports media reported quoting an SLC interim committee source. “We have asked him for a program and how he plans to get on with the coaching.”

Rhodes will also coach the coaches apart from the national cricketers on the latest techniques of fielding.
