Watch: Harmanpreet Kaur’s Savage Reaction To Being Called ‘Jemimah’ By The Presenter

The Indian women’s cricket team displayed an impressive performance to secure an emphatic 108-run victory over Bangladesh in the second ODI, levelling the three-match series 1-1 in Dhaka. The star of the match was the 22-year-old Jemimah Rodrigues, who shone with both the bat and the ball, leading her team to a comprehensive win.

India won the toss and chose to bat first. Opening with Smriti Mandhana and Priya Punia, the team started steadily, but Rabeya Khatun and Marufa Akter dismissed both openers. Yastika Bhatia was run out for 15 runs. The captain, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Jemimah Rodrigues then took charge, scoring impressive half-centuries of 52 and 86 runs, respectively, guiding India to a commanding total of 228 for 8 in their 50 overs.

Jemimah continued her excellent form with the ball, wreaking havoc in the Bangladeshi middle order. She claimed four crucial wickets, dismissing Ritu Moni, skipper Nigar Sultana, Nahida Akter, and Marufa Akter. Devika Vaidhya also contributed with the ball, taking three wickets by dismissing Fargana Hoque, Rabeya Khatun, and Sultana Khatun. Meghna Singh, Deepti Sharma, and Sneh Rana each took one wicket as India bundled Bangladesh out for a mere 120 runs.

A noteworthy incident occurred after the match when the presenter mistakenly addressed the Indian captain, Harmanpreet Kaur, as Jemimah. However, Harmanpreet handled the situation with grace and wit, promptly correcting the presenter with a crisp reply, which garnered praise from fans.

The presenter post-match as he mistakenly addressed Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur as Jemimah. And the Indian captain produced a mic drop moment as she corrected the presenter with a crisp reply and stated, “Harmanpreet Kaur. Thank you”, with a wry smile.

With the series level at 1-1, the third and final ODI, scheduled for July 22, promises to be thrilling as it will decide the series’ fate. Both teams will be eager to give their best and win the crucial decider.
