The Hundred format is getting exciting by the day with both the mens and the women’s versions being played parallelly. The newest format in the game has 5 Indians playing in the women’s version. And all of them had an outing each. While Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana failed to fire in their opening games. Harmanpreet and Deepti Sharma showed glimpses of their best but none could match what Jemimah Rodrigues achieved for her team. The Northern Superchargers against Welsh fire on the 4th day.
Chasing an imposing target of 132, after Welsh scored 131/8 in 100 balls, the Superchargers were tottering at 19/4 when Jemimah took charge and blasted the Welsh bowling to all parts of the field with dazzling cricket shots Jemimah Rodrigues lits up “the hundred” with a dazzling 92 in team win !! . The sweeps and flicks on the on-side, the delightful cuts and glides square on the offside. The stepped out lofted shots down the ground and the trademark cover drives were all there as Jemimah. Who was in poor form in the recent India matches. Announced her return to form with full range of sparkling shots to pull her team out of the depths of despair to a brilliant win in 85 balls. Her 92 not out came off just 43 balls and she hit 17 fours and 1 six in her dazzling knock.
