Jonty Rhodes, the former South African cricketer and the present fielding coach of Mumbai Indians became a father on Thursday. He has been blessed with a baby girl and Jonty, and his wife Melanie have decided to name their daughter ‘India’.  The full name of the baby is going to be India Jeanne Jonty Rhodes.

Rhodes made his debut for South Africa against Australia in the Benson & Hedges World Cup in 1992. It was in this tournament Rhodes displayed an acrobatic run-out to dismiss Inzamam-ul-Haq of Pakistan. That was one iconic moment of his career. He gave up his international career after the 2003 World Cup. Rhodes remains a favourite candidate for stints as fielding coach. He has been a consultant/fielding coach for Pakistan, Kenya, South Africa and Mumbai Indians.
