Jonty & Melanie Rhodes, with their first born, India, and Dr Saste

He may be a proud South African (and an even prouder eThekwini Living Legend!), but with his wife having given birth to their second child in the city of Mumbai just a few days ago, it seems that former South African cricket superstar, Jonty Rhodes, definitely has firm ties to India! Jonty and Melanie’s first baby, aptly named India, was born in Mumbai in 2015, with Nathan John, their little boy born just hours before the Mumbai Indians won their third IPL title on Sunday. Jonty, who is commonly regarded as the greatest fielder in modern day cricket, is currently the fielding coach for the Mumbai Indians and was in the dugout at the time that his son was born.

A massive congratulations to Jonty and Melanie on the arrival of the newest member of the Rhodes family!
