Exciting news for fans of The Hundred as the talented Indian cricketer, Jemimah Rodrigues, is set to make her comeback to the Northern Superchargers squad. The 22-year-old star will replace the injured Heather Graham in the third edition of the fast-paced cricket competition.
Jemimah Rodrigues, who impressed everyone with her performance as the second top-scorer in the inaugural season of The Hundred, expressed her excitement about rejoining the action. She had to miss last year's tournament due to an injury, making her return even more special for her and her fans.
"I'm so excited to be back in The Hundred. It's a world-class competition, and I've had so much fun participating in it previously. I was very disappointed to have to withdraw last year through injury, so it's great to be back," Rodrigues said.
The Northern Superchargers will be thrilled to have Jemimah's dynamic batting skills back in their lineup, adding more depth and firepower to their squad. She is expected to make a significant impact with her aggressive style of play, delighting spectators at the iconic Headingley ground.
The third edition of The Hundred has seen several replacements and temporary changes across teams due to various factors like injuries and international commitments.
