Jonty Rhodes to Join TNPL Team Ruby Trichy Warriors

Chennai: Legendary South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes will be joining Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) team Ruby Trichy (RPT) Trichy Warriors as mentor.

This was revealed by the team on its Twitter feed.

"It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's @JontyRhodes8! ???? Welcoming our mentor & brand ambassador for @TNPremierLeague 2.0! #DoubleTheGethu," the franchise said.

Tinu Yohannan, head coach of Trichy Warriors, said "the mere presence of a legendary player like Rhodes can motivate the players. I am excited to welcome him to the team."

"It will be a privilege to have him in our midst. His presence in the dressing room and during the practice sessions can be invaluable. He can pass on a lot of knowledge to the young players," Yohannan, a former India Test cricketer, said adding Rhodes will be linking up with the squad on 7 August.

"He (Rhodes) will be with the team for two days."

"Though he will be with the team only for one match, it will be good to have him with us. With his experience, he can pass on valuable tips to the Warriors players," the team head coach added.
