The inaugural season of Women’s Premier League is underway and Delhi Capitals (DC) vice-captain Jemimah Rodrigues believes that securing close wins will benefit the team in the long run. DC recently picked up a close victory over the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The Meg Lanning-led side chased down the 151-run target with two balls to spare.
The DC middle order, including Jemimah, stepped up to the task after the top order struggled under pressure. She stitched up a crucial partnership with Marizanne Kapp before her untimely dismissal. The right-handed batter scored a composed 32 run-knock off 28 deliveries before Jess Jonassen came in and applied the finishing touches.
Jemimah Rodrigues opens up on the win
Noting that such close matches can test and improve the character of the team, Jemimah said in a post-match interview with the broadcasters:
“These are the matches we live for. I think it is very important for us to be tested that’s when our character is tested. It’s good that we are getting matches like this in the league stages, helps us prepare for the finals.”
Jemimah was dismissed courtesy of a soft dismissal by leg spinner Asha Shobana in the 15th over. She reflected on her own dismissal which left DC in a tricky spot, she said:
“I wanted to finish it off and come, I was disappointed with the way I got out but the way JJ came and hit those boundaries.”
DC has been on the tail of Mumbai Indians (MI) for the spot securing automatic qualification. Both sides are currently placed on eight points, with only net run rate separating them at the moment.
