Jonty Rhodes’ trademark run-out

The legendary cricketer who earned praises for his impressive fielding skills and his contribution to South African cricket recently made the headlines as he showered praises on the Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja after the southpaw pitched in with a significant knock of 58 runs to steer his team to a decent total in the first test against West Indies at Antigua on Saturday.

The ex Proteas star appreciated Jadeja for his stupendous batting after India lost 7 wickets with only 207 runs on the board. Jonty seemed extremely happy with the fact that Jadeja, who was known for the knack of his fielding abilities besides batting and bowling, had scored important runs for the team when it mattered the most.

“Love it when a fielder scores valuable runs #topknock @imjadeja #INDvWI,” wrote Jonty Rhodes on his official Twitter handle.

But it seems that the tweet did not go down well with one of the fans. The fan replied with statistics to remind Jonty that he was only known for his fielding skills while Jadeja was a far better batsman and bowler as compared to him.

“Mr @JontyRhodes8 you were known only for fielding.. Jadeja is known for his bowling batting & fielding obviously…(have you ever achieve any ICC ranking in single-digit) Jadeja achieves test, ODI bowling rank no.1 and in top 10 in test since last 3 4 years @imjadeja#INDvsWI,” the fan wrote.

Jonty, however, wasn’t much bothered by the insulting remark from the fan and came up with a classy reply to shut him down. “You too #aramse was trying to be funny – he is GR8 all-rounder (get that???),” Jonty replied.
