A statement on the official website of the Hundred read, “Northern Superchargers batter Jemimah Rodrigues has unfortunately been forced to end her season in The Hundred due to injury.”

Jemimah Rodrigues had sustained a blow to her right wrist during India’s last league stage game at the Commonwealth Games against Barbados. However, she continued playing and ended the tournament with 146 runs and much more importantly played crucial roles for India each time the side was in trouble.

In the Hundred’s opening game against Oval Invincible, Jemimah Rodrigues scored 51 off 32 balls and in her 2nd and final game for the season against London Spirit was dismissed early for 2.

Jemimah Rodrigues last summer for Northern Supercharges’ put on a spectacular show that helped her earn retention by the side. In the inaugural edition last summer, Jemimah Rodrigues scored 249 runs in only 7 innings 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.
