Cricket World Player of the Week - Jemimah Rodrigues
10 days into the Hundred, Jemimah Rodrigues is among the top run-scorers across the Men's and Women's competition, and by far the most elegant of the lot.
Jemimah Rodrigues is currently the top run-scorer not only for Northern Superchargers but sits atop The Women's Hundred batting charts.
The elegant right-hander has scored 166 runs at a strike rate of 176. She has struck 30 fours and one six. With a best of 92*, she has helped Northern Superchargers reach the 2nd spot in The Women's Hundred points table with 3 wins from 4 matches.
Jemimah had been short on form since the resumption of cricket post the COVID-19 induced break. She failed in all the five opportunities against South Africa at Lucknow.
Rodrigues was then not part of the XI for the only Test and three T20Is between India and England. She could not manage a double digit score in the two chances she got in the ODIs.
Come The Hundred and Rodrigues flicked a switch, smashing 92 not out in Northern Superchargers first match of the competition.
Rodrigues conceded after the knock that she was taking a bit too much pressure and not enjoying the game. Something she made it a point to correct and that helped her regain lost form. Her return to form is a great sign not only for Indian cricket but women's cricket in general.
