Mumbai:  Former England cricket captain Nasser Hussain has tipped talented Jemimah Rodrigues to be a star for the Indian women’s cricket team.

The 17-year-old Mumbai all-rounder Jemimah, the second-youngest women’s T20I half-centurion, and the youngest from her country, was part of India’s double-series wins in South Africa.

She is also the youngest centrally-contracted players with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

“Remember the name… Jemimah Rodrigues.. did some throw downs with her today .. she’s going to be a star for India,” Hussain, who played 96 Tests, wrote on Twitter, posting a picture with Jemimah.
