Indian Women Cricketer Jemimah Rodrigues is currently in England and plays in the first issue of The Hundred. She represents Northern Superchargers and ruled the competition with her beautiful batting.
Rodrigues has played six games so far and is currently the highest scorer in the 100-ball tournament. The right-handed victim scored 248 runs at a whopping 49.60 average, including three half-centuries. Her team Superchargers is third on the points ladder with three wins in seven games.
Aside from being in the field for her, Rodrigues is also pretty entertaining off the field. She took a look during her debut for Sky Sports. While on the air, Rodrigues was asked to announce her favorite wicketkeeper-batsman, and she received a humorous response.
The Mumbaikar gets the first Australian name Adam Gilchrist as her favorite wicketkeeper, but then moved quickly to the Indian legend MS Dhoniand said the fans in India would kill her if she forgot Dhoni’s name.
‘I think Adam Gilchrist … Oh, I’m sorry – and MS Dhoni! “People in India will kill me.” says Rodrigues.
The official Twitter handle of Fan code – broadcasters of The Hundred in India – shared the video of the interesting conversation.
‘You would think @JemiRodrigues is a #MSDhoni fan, but is she? (Blink face emojis). (Movie Projector Emoji) Look to find out which guard-batsman idolizes the young man! ” tweeted the Fan Code.

During her comment period, Rodrigues also revealed how she handled criticism after experiencing difficult times while scoring runs before the start of The Hundred.
‘For me, the best way to deal with criticism is to ignore it, not even go online or read things, because it’s hard when you’re doing your best and working hard, no one knows what you went through, the tears, the sadness, the sweat you got to be where you are, ” says Rodrigues.
‘And someone who sits miles away and posts things on social media, it’s hard, and the way I have handled this time is to stay as far away from it as possible so I can focus on my game and in the right space can be,’ she added.
