Jemimah Rodrigues will play in The Hundred for the Northern Superchargers

The 20-year-old will be accompanied in the 100-ball tournament by her T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur, vice-captain Smriti Mandhana, opener Shafali Verma, and all-rounder Deepti Sharma.

Jemimah Rodrigues, a young Indian batswoman, will play for Northern Superchargers in the inaugural edition of The Hundred in the United Kingdom, which begins on July 21. The 20-year-old will be accompanied in the 100-ball competition by her T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur, vice-captain Smriti Mandhana, opener Shafali Verma, and all-rounder Deepti Sharma.

“I am quite excited about it” (The Hundred). Rodrigues told the BBC’s ‘Stumped’ podcast. “I used to play for the Yorkshire Diamonds, and now I play for the Northern Superchargers. So, I’ve played a handful of them previously, and our captain is Lauren Winfield,” Rodrigues continued.

Rodrigues has been nominated to India’s team for the upcoming tour of England, which will begin with a one-off Test in Bristol on June 16, followed by three ODIs and as many T20Is.
She is presently part of a 14-day quarantine here with the rest of the women’s and men’s teams.

Lauren Winfield-Hill of England is scheduled to captain the Northern Superchargers, which also boasts top Australian bowler Alyssa Healy. Rodrigues, Kaur, Mandhana, and Sharma, all played in the now-defunct Kia Super League (KSL), the ECB’s domestic T20 event that gave way to the Women’s Hundred.

The Hundred, which was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, is set to begin on July 21 in London with a women’s match between the Oval Invincibles and the Manchester Originals.
