According to ESPNCricinfo, brilliant Indian batsman Jemimah Rodrigues has been ruled out of the remainder of the Northern Superchargers campaign in the ongoing Women’s Hundred with a fractured wrist. Rodrigues will now be replaced by Gaby Lewis, who replaced Smriti Mandhana in the last edition of the competition.
According to several reports, including ESPNCricinfo, Indian Jemimah Rodrigues will not participate in the rest of the Women’s Hundred after fracturing her wrist. Rodrigues had received a blow to the right wrist from Shakera Selman during India commonwealth games match against Barbados but continued to play the Cent with a taped wrist. In fact, she already has a total of 146 races, which is fifth among all.
Rodrigues will now be replaced by Gaby Lewis, who will only be available for two matches either side of Ireland’s three-match ODI series against the Netherlands. Notably, Lewis was part of Southern Brave after India Smriti Mandhana left home towards the end of the league stages to prepare for the Indian tour of Australia. Lewis had also captained Ireland in the home series against South Africa last month in the absence of Laura Delaney.
“I’m delighted to be back playing in the Hundred once again, having had a taste of the competition last year. It will be a juggling of commitments between Ireland and the Superchargers, but I want to make sure I can contribute to both teams as fully as possible,” Lewis said on the Superchargers call, as quoted by ESPNCricinfo.
Meanwhile, Rodrigues will want to be fit for the India tour of England, which kicks off on September 10. The series will feature three T20Is followed by three ODIs.
