17 year old Jemimah Rodrigues floors India Red with classy 84; gets applause on Twitter

While South Africa vs India first Test in Capetown grabbing millions of eyeballs, 17-year-old Jemimah Rodrigues was taking on India Red bowlers in the Challengers Series 2018.

The teenage sensation made batting look easy with her copy-book drives. Rodrigues did not hold back as she stepped out against spinners, played the ball on full and took over the fielders inside the 30-yard circle.

The levels of precision are high in the youngster as she middles the ball and pierces the field. She scored 84 runs from 93 balls at a strike rate of 90.32. Her innings included 12 boundaries. She knows how to shift gears after playing herself in. She seemed to impress Mithali as well with her talent at such a young age opening for India Green.

Her innings eclipsed opener Punam Raut‘s innings of 84 runs from 124 balls. India Green skipper Anuja Patil played a quickfire knock of 44 from 31 balls and guided her team to an 8-wicket victory with 44 balls to spare.

Twitterati too seemed impressed by Rodrigues knock:
