Know Your Player – Jemimah Rodrigues

Another of India’s teenage quartet, Jemimah Rodrigues occupies the pivotal number 3 spot. A very consistent and classic batter, Rodrigues also possesses the ability to move into the fourth gear effortlessly. Though she did not fare well in the tri-series and though her strike rate in her last 8 innings has dipped slightly to 94.17, she would look to take confidence from her phenomenal performance in the Kia Super League 2019. She scored the fastest KSL century, her 112 runs coming off just 58 balls. She also topped the runs chart in the league stage racking up 401 runs at an average of 57.28 and a strike rate of 149.62. India will hope she can replicate that run in the World Cup. But it’s sometimes easy to forget that she is just 19 facing sky-high expectations.
