I love batting in England, the wickets are more batter-friendly than in India: Jemimah Rodrigues
Jemimah Rodrigues went through a rough patch before the Hundred commenced last week. She was in and out of the Indian side during the series against England due to indifferent returns with the bat.
However, she kept training hard and is now reaping the rewards with two successive match-winning efforts in the Hundred. Jemimah Rodrigues talked about this during her post-match interview after the first game. She said:
"I've just stuck to my game, kept things simple and played the best cricket I possibly knew. I was batting really well in the nets and that makes a lot of difference because I knew there was nothing wrong with my technique or anything. It's just going out there with a new mindset so I just worked from that."
"Coming back here, it really feels like coming home. I love batting in England, the wickets are more batter-friendly than in India. It was a very good innings and a much-needed one for me personally... It's just very good being back."
