Team India batter Jemimah Rodrigues who is currently in the 14-day quarantine as the side is scheduled to tour England for a multi-format tour, will have an extended stay in the UK as she will be staying along with Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur for ECB’s brainchild The Hundred.
Rodrigues will be representing the Northern Superchargers in the inaugural edition of The Hundred which is slated to begin from July 21 in the UK.
“I am really looking forward to it (The Hundred). Something new, something different. I have played for the Yorkshire Diamonds and my team is the Northern Superchargers. So, I have played a few of them before, Lauren Winfield is our captain,” the 20-year-old told the BBC's 'Stumped' podcast.
It will be a really great opportunity for the Indian batter as she will be playing under the leadership of England’s World Cup winner Lauren Winfield-Hill along with one of the big names in Australian cricket, Alyssa Healy.
The Mumbai-based batswoman who is currently in Mumbai along with the women’s team is named in the Indian squad for their upcoming tour which consists of one-off Test match in Bristol from 16 June, followed by a three-match ODI and T20I series each.
The Hundred, which was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is scheduled to start from 21 July with the women's match between the Oval Invincibles and Manchester Originals in London.
