After Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana, it's time for Jemimah Rodrigues to feature in the Kia Super League.

The 18-year-old Mumbai cricketer, who has enjoyed tremendous success for the Indian women's team for the last year-and-a-half, was recently named the player of the tournament in the Women's T20 Challenge, which was held in Jaipur in May.
