Jemimah Rodriguez has been quite the find as far as the Indian Women’s team is concerned. The young batswoman, along with Smriti Mandhana is one of the most easy to the eye players going around. She has also shown another fun loving side to her fans in these quarantine days. Apart from dancing to various Bollywood tunes and playing the guitar with perfection, she teamed up with partner in crime, Smriti and started her YouTube channel.
Recently while doing a show with South African cricketer JP Duminy, she was asked to choose her all time IPL 11 and she picked quite a solid team. Her top 3 players included 3 IPL captains in the form of Rohit Sharma, David Warner and Virat Kohli. She picked a total of 5 overseas players in her team and at number 4 she chose Virat’s teammate and friend AB De Villiers.
At first glance, it looks like she is of the opinion that T20 cricket is a game of all rounders and she packed her team with 4 of them. At 3 down and 4 down, she had Ben Stokes and Andre Russell. The wicket-keeper, captain and Number 7 batsman was an expected choice, MS Dhoni. Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Nabi completed the list of all rounders and were followed by Rashid Khan and Jasprit Bumrah.
It looks quite an impressive team that can take on any World 11.
