Jemimah Rodrigues receives ODI call-up for India Women tour of South Africa

Rodrigues, all of 17, shot to limelight when she smashed 202 in the Inter-State women's Under-19 one-day tournament for Mumbai against Saurashtra.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the ODI squad of India Women's side for the upcoming South Africa tour. The highest wicket-taker in the world Jhulan Goswami will lead the bowling attack in the alien conditions and Shikha Pandey will share the new ball with her. Before the first ODI, India Women will play a warm-up on February 2 at Bloemfontein. Rodrigues, Vastrakar and Bhatia had all done well earlier for India A in their limited-overs series against Bangladesh A at home. "But despite the injury in the Challenger opener, I held on to my hopes of making it to the squad [for the South Africa tour] given the swing I was generating both ways in that game and also in the final". Apart from Sushma Verma, the selectors have also picked a back-up wicketkeeper in Taniya Bhatia. Even though her performances with the bat have not been of note in the run-up to the selection, Bhatia's agility behind the stumps gave her the edge over Parween. Along with her, two other uncapped players are also selected in the squad - 18-year old Pooja Vastrakar from Madhya Prades and 20-year old Taniya Bhatia from Punjab.

The rest of the squad is along expected lines, featuring 13 members who figured in the World Cup. At the end of the ODI exchanges, the teams will play five Twenty20 Internationals.
