India’s batting sensation Jemimah Rodrigues has taken The Hundred by storm on and off the field. She recently made her commentary debut for Sky Sports during the encounter between Manchester Originals and the London Spirit.
Jemimah shared a few pictures from her commentary stint on her Twitter account. She wrote:
“What an experience!!! Thanks, @SkyCricket for having me in the Comm Box todayPS: Stay tuned… something exciting coming up @markbutcher72 #TheHundred #CommBoxDebut.”
India’s wicket-keeper batsman and commentator Dinesh Karthik commented on her post praising the 20-year-old Jemimah Rodrigues. Karthik wrote:
“Well done. You were fab. Good to see you follow the ONLY rule in the Comms box as well.”

The wicket-keeper batsman further tried to teach Jemimah Rodrigues a commentary box rule but got trolled by her instead. He commented:
“Never ever listen to anything @nassercricket or @robkey612 have to say #ONLYRULE.”
Taking the banter further replied, “Interestingly enough, that’s EXACTLY what they told me about anything you say!”

Apart from her fun Twitter interaction with Dinesh Karthik, Jemimah’s cheeky reply went viral on social media. She was asked about her favourite wicket-keeper batsman, to which Jemimah quickly replied as Adam Gilchrist but changed it to MS Dhoni adding that the people in India would kill her if she says otherwise.
