Speaking to IANS, a senior BCCI functionary confirmed that Rhodes has applied for the position of fielding coach and while he hasn’t worked with any national team, he is eligible because he has coached Mumbai Indians for nine seasons.

“Yes, Rhodes has applied and while it is true that he hasn’t coached any international team, he has been involved with Mumbai Indians for nine seasons and as per the eligibility criteria, you need to have worked with an IPL team for three seasons if not an international team,” the functionary said.
