Kuldeep Yadav undergoes surgery, vows strong comeback after rehab
29 Sep 2021
The Melbourne Renegades Women have signed up India Women’s T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur and explosive batter Jemimah Rodrigues for the upcoming edition of the Women's Big Bash League scheduled to start on October 14.
Neither Harmanpreet nor Jemimah played any of the games in the recently-concluded limited-overs series against Australian Women and their lack of game time can be a point of concern. However, the Renegades Women have gone for the record and match-winning abilities.
"I’m very excited to be here now and to be part of the Renegades. I think for me, the main goal over here will be just to pull back and play cricket, play some good cricket and enjoy what I’m doing. I know when I do that and when I’m in that headspace, I’m able to give it my best," Rodrigues said.
"The goal is whatever happens, I want to give it my 100 percent each and every time I’m on the field… and hopefully (we can win) the cup for the Renegades. I’m super excited, I’m really looking forward to it and there’s so much that I’m going to learn, I’m sure about that."
Harmanpareet and Jemimah’s inclusion in the Renegade Women camp is the latest addition of Indian Women stars after the Sydney Sixers picked explosive Indian opener Shafali Verma and left-arm spinner Radha Yadav, and the Sydney Thunder picked Verma’s partner Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma for their BBL campaign this season.
