#Balance: Legend Jonty pays tribute to adopted home, names daughter 'India'

From Brett Lee to Kevin Pietersen, it’s well known that the IPL has not only created some very wealthy cricketers but lifelong lovers of India.

South African legend Jonty Rhodes is the latest.  The popular great has taken such a shine to India, where he is the fielding coach for the IPL’s Mumbai Indians, has named his new-born daughter ‘India’.

Speaking to mid-day after a Mumbai Indians training session at the Wankhede Stadium this week, the 45-year-old explained his reasons for choosing the name: “I have spent a lot of time here. What I love about India is that it’s a rich mix of culture, heritage and tradition.  It is a very spiritual country, very forward-thinking nation.  I really like that combination.  You have to have a good balance of life.

“With the name like India, she will have the best of both worlds and that sort of balance,” Rhodes added before taking off in his classic Royal Enfield Bullet.

Jonty’s wife Melanie gave birth to a baby girl at Surya Mother and Child Care Hospital in Santa Cruz on Thursday.

The wealthy come in a myriad different guises – Gopichand Hinduja looks like the unmarried uncle everyone ignores; Lalit Modi looks like a character from the Indian version of ‘Only Fools and Horses’ whilst Narayan Murthy looks like a bored tax collector on the verge of retirement.
