The debut edition of women’s cricket at the Commonwealth Games is soon coming to an end. The next star-stunned destination will remain to be England as the 2nd edition of The Hundred gets underway on the 11th of August. The upcoming edition of The Hundred will only see 3 Indian faces in the mix.
All-arounder, Deepti Sharma has been one of India’s best in recent times both with bat and ball. She’ll this summer be featuring for the Birmingham Phoenix after being roped in as a wildcard. Deepti in the previous, inaugural edition of the Hundred played for the London Spirits and finished the tournament as the leading wicket for the side with 10 to her name in 8 innings at an excellent economy rate of 5.26 and registered best figures of 2/10.
Batter, Jemimah Rodrigues has been retained by her side Northern Supercharges for the upcoming edition as well. Jemimah had an unbelievably good season last summer playing for the supercharges having scored 249 runs in only 7 games and finished as the 2nd highest run-getter in the tournament. Jemimah had a strike rate of 150.90 at an average of 41.50 and the highest score of 92* in the 100-ball tournament.
Opener, Smriti Mandhana too has been retained by her side Southern Brave. In 7 innings last summer Smriti scored 167 runs at an average of 27.83, a strike rate of 133.60 got to the highest score of 78 in the season.
