Lahore:In its bid to get the maximum out of Jonty Rhodes' 14-day stint as fielding coach, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has prepared a CD containing the South African's coaching tips to be distributed among regional academies and schools.

''The CD will be edited and then its copies will be distributed to all the regional academies and schools to create a vision about fielding in modern day cricket,'' the Associated Press of Pakistan quoted a PCB spokesman as saying.

Rhodes is also busy addressing a four-day seminar on fielding for coaches here and will be conducting workshops for the Pakistan A team before their tour of Australia next month.

The CD has been made by PCB coach Shahid Aslam and has Rhodes speaking on his career's experiences.

''It will be a very beneficial venture for the upcoming cricketers to discipline themselves in fielding which later on becomes a problem for them no matter how mature they are in international or Test cricket,'' he said.
