India batter Jemimah Rodrigues‘ played in just two matches in the ongoing “The Hundred” before her wrist injury forced her to withdraw from the rest of the competition.

Rodrigues played for the Northern Superchargers side.

“Northern Superchargers batter Jemimah Rodrigues has unfortunately been forced to end her season in The Hundred due to injury,” the tournament’s official website said.

Rodrigues, who competed for India in the team that won the silver medal in the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, had previously suffered a wrist injury when playing Barbados in a league stage match. With 146 runs, she finished as the CWG’s fifth-highest scorer.

The damage’s full magnitude not yet known. The Indian squad is hoping Rodrigues is able to recover in time for the England away series next month.

A white-ball series between India and England set to begin on September 10 and include three T20Is and as many ODIs.

The Superchargers lost their opening game against the Oval Invincibles in The Hundred. But the 21-year-old Rodrigues hammered 51 off 32 balls and made two against the London Spirit.

Ireland’s Gaby Lewis has come in to bat in place of the Indian hitter.

The Superchargers’ season started last week with a nine-wicket loss to the Invincibles. But they rebounded to overcome London Spirit by five runs in Leeds in their second game. She led the Superchargers in scoring the previous season.
