Jemimah Rodrigues is conscious of her abilities and doesn’t see a need to change them in an effort to emulate powerful players like captain Harmanpreet Kaur or graceful timers like Smriti Mandhana. Jemimah’s vital innings of 56 off 46 balls, which had a different structure than those of Harmanpreet or Shafali Verma, were crucial to India defeating Barbados by a score of 100 runs.
“Smriti had earlier told me that you don’t have to be a Harmanpreet Kaur or a Smriti Mandhana to play in the IPL [Women’s T20 Challenge] in 2019. You must possess a Jemimah Rodrigues. Jemimah remarked after the game, “I think I understand that role, and it’s helping me.
Jemimah doesn’t really care what other people think.
“I am now a member of the team. As long as I can play that role, it doesn’t matter what others think. If the team dynamics work out, we have Shafali, Smriti, and Harman, so I just want to contribute as much as I can to the group, she continued.
She’s not hesitant to admit that power hitting isn’t her best skill, but she’s still working on it so she can be more useful in shorter games.
“My power play has obviously become better, but what’s more significant is that I’ve learned more about my game. I don’t have much power; I’m a placer. I can hit for both singles and doubles, and I have strong fielding instincts. I think of that as my strength, she said.
Jemimah is certain that even if she doesn’t hit many sixes, she can gradually raise her strike rate.
“Despite the lack of flash in my game, I still manage to have a good strike rate. I’ve come to the conclusion that Jemimah Rodrigues, and not anyone else, is who I must be in order to succeed. What has helped me is this, she continued.
She also stressed their collaborative relationship and her promotion to number three by Ramesh Power. which she considers to be the ideal situation for her to succeed.
After the previous match, Ramesh [Powar] Sir had told her to get ready for No. 3, she recalled. Since I was getting ready, I was actually ready for both. You never know where the team might need you, explained Jemimah, so even as I was practicing in the nets with our side-arm (throwdown) specialist, I was prepared for both.
“But Number 3 is my favorite, and I continue to keep that position. I’m pleased that I could take part and add to the team’s and the plan’s efforts there. it was fruitful for the team, she added.
The Mumbai-born cricketer went on to state that the opportunities she had while playing for the Northern Superchargers in The Hundred the previous year had been essential in aiding her adaptation to the English game and giving her the confidence she needed to perform well at the CWG in Birmingham.
The best aspect of the “Hundred” was, according to Jemimah, getting to play under English conditions, something I wouldn’t have otherwise had the chance to do.
“I think it happens when you go out and score runs. You are confident in every game, even those played at home. My experience was the same. It was a blessing for me to get the chance to play with the Northern Superchargers.
