UAE batter was on the field

India Women have been in sublime form in the ongoing Asia Cup and the United Arab Emirates were the latest team to suffer defeat at their hands. India batted first after winning the toss but lost three early wickets in the innings. However, Deepti Sharma and Jemimah Rodrigues stitched a crucial partnership to orchestrate recovery from this early collapse. Deepti scored 64 runs from 49 balls while Jemimah scored unbeaten 75 runs from 45 balls.

India restricted UAE to 74/4 scripting a 104-run win but a gesture from Jemimah Rodrigues was the talking point of the game. Kavisha Egodage was batting in the fifth over of the second innings and the playing conditions were quite hot. Egodage seemed to be cramped up and got down at the non-striker’s end.

She was looking uncomfortable and Jemimah helped her remove her pads displaying a generous gesture to keep the sportsmanship alive. The batter eventually recovered and continued her knock but Jemimah’s act of sportsmanship was noticed by the internet and users expressed their sentiments about the incident.
