Pakistan are set to hire former South Africa international cricketer Jonty Rhodes on a short-term basis to help improve their fielding, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Friday.

“The chances are good that we will get Rhodes on a short-term contract. We should be able to have him in Pakistan in May,” a PCB official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The 37-year-old Rhodes played 52 Tests and 245 One-day Internationals between 1992 and 2003 and is recognised as one of the most outstanding fielders in modern cricket.

The official said that the aim was to get Rhodes on a short-term assignment to train the Pakistan senior and A team players. “We want him working with our senior players before they tour England in June and then train our younger players at the National Cricket Academy (NCA),” he added.
