Skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq believes that Jonty Rhodesâ€™ brief stint as Pakistanâ€™s fielding consultant is going to show positive results in the coming months.
â€œI am not going to say that we will become very good fielders within three or four days but there is going to be an improvement in a few months once we start implementing drills being taught to us by Jonty,â€ Inzamam said.
Rhodes, counted among the best fielders of his era, began his short coaching stint with Pakistan earlier this week with an eye on raising the standard of their fielding ahead of this summerâ€™s tour of England.
Inzamam said that he was very pleased with the initiative taken by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) saying that he and fellow teammates are looking forward to benefit from the tips given by the former South African Test cricketer and from the fielding drills being carried out by him at a training camp under progress in Lahore in preparations for the series against England.
â€œJonty knows what he is talking about,â€ he said. â€œHe has been a great fielder and we can learn a lot from him,â€ said Inzamam, who is counted among one of the poorer fielders in the Pakistani squad.
But he made it clear that nobody should expect overnight results. â€œWe are going to include the drills being taught by him in our training schedule and it would be after three or four months that the results would become clear.â€
Inzamam said that he wants the Pakistan team to improve in all areas of the game, especially fielding, in the lead up to next yearâ€™s World Cup.
â€œThere is always room for more improvement and I can assure you that all my boys are striving to get better with more and more hard work and commitment,â€ he remarked.
