Jemimah looking forward to South Africa tour
Mumbai: She is just 17-years-old, has made it to the Indian women's cricket team and is now keenly looking forward to the SA tour.
"I am really looking forward to the SA tour. It's my first trip with the Indian team," said Mumbai girl Jemimah Rodrigues ahead of the team's departure to the Rainbow Nation. "Everyone has supported me really well and they have not made me feel like I am a new girl or the youngest one in the team. They have gelled up well with me. I am a bit nervous, but I am excited too," said Rodrigues, who has made headlines with her breath-taking performances in the domestic circuit.
The Indian's women team is to take on hosts South Africa in a three-match ODI series which starts at Kimberly on February 5, followed by a five-match T20 series, which begins on February 13.
The girl also met Sachin Tendulkar, who gave a pep talk to the members of the women's cricket team, before they flew to South Africa.
