Top 10 South African middle order batsmen of all time
#9 Jonty Rhodes
The former South African cricketer is perhaps best known for being one of the greatest fielders to have ever played the game but for eight years from 1992 to 2000, Jonty Rhodes was a regular in the team's middle-order.
Just like his fielding, Rhodes' batting was also inventive in nature and he was the quintessential 'busy player' as commentators like to say. He did not have the best technique in the world but the made the most of it and provided South Africa with an extra edge at number and number 6 positions.
Rhodes was also one of South Africa's best players of spin in that era. In 52 Tests, he scored 3 centuries and 17 half-centuries and averaged 35.75. Rhodes made a total of 2503 runs in those Test matches.Published 04 Jan 2018, 00:52 IST
