Yahoo signs Jonty Rhodes as analyst for World Cup coverage

Yahoo India has brought on board South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes as its analyst for the tournament’s coverage on Yahoo Cricket.

Yahoo users can now enjoy Rhodes’ take on the World Cup action, as it unfolds, through the pre and post-game analysis. Also, they will get a chance to chat live with Rhodes.

“Cricket creates such a high in India – whether it is being played or talked about. With Yahoo Cricket, which is hugely popular among fans not just in India but across the globe, I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts with cricket lovers the world over and also hearing from them. Together, this World Cup is going to be much more fun,” said Rhodes.

Gurmit Singh, Vice-President and Managing Director at Yahoo India, said, “Jonty is one of the most respected names in world cricket and loved by fans in India. We believe his connect with users and voice – brought alive through videos, in-depth stories and chat opportunities for fans, across devices – will make Yahoo Cricket the digital hub where users can converge to enjoy the World Cup.”

Widely regarded as the first fielding superstar of the cricketing world, Rhodes has enjoyed outstanding success throughout his career, in which he played 52 test matches and 245 one-day internationals (ODIs). His first shot at fame was during the 1992 World Cup, when he flew through the air to memorably run out Pakistan’s Inzamam-ul-Haq, thus creating one of cricket’s most iconic moments.

Rhodes has also served as the South African team’s fielding coach. He is also an advisor-cum-fielding coach at the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
