Jemimah Rodrigues made her commentary debut on Tuesday.
India cricketer Jemimah Rodrigues is ruling the inaugural season of The Hundred. She is featuring for Northern Superchargers and not only on the field, she is very entertaining off it as well. Jemimah, irrespective of the team she is playing for, enjoys with her teammates and nothing has changed during her stay in England as well. Interestingly, on an off day from cricket, Sky Sports invited her to commentary and she made her debut with a mic in hand.
Jemimah is very much famous for her hilarious behaviour in front of camera. In so many videos posted before on social media, she has always had fun and keeps people around her entertained. And her one-day commentary stint was no different. Moreover, another Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik, who is working with Sky Sports for this English summer, was also in the commentary box.
During the match, Jemimah Rodrigues was asked about her favourite wicketkeeper-batter and like she always does, came up with a funny answer. The 20-year-old first named Adam Gilchrist as her favourite and then also picked MS Dhoni stating that the fans back in India will kill her if she forgets the legendary cricketer’s name. “I think Adam Gilchrist..Oh I’m sorry – and MS Dhoni! People in India will kill me,” she said.
Jemimah shining in The Hundred
Jemimah Rodrigues is one of the main reasons for Northern Superchargers being at the second position at the moment in The Hundred. After playing in six matches, the team has won three matches and has seven points to their name as one of the matches got abandoned.
Rodrigues has shining in the tournament right from the word go. She is also the highest run-getter at the moment having amassed 241 runs in just five innings with three half-centuries to her name. Her average of 60.25 is also brilliant and the strike-rate of 154.48 is one of the best. Before The Hundred started, Jemimah wasn’t in great form at the international level but ahead of Australia tour, she must have gained a lot of confidence now.
