Getting help from Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant
In the post-match interview, the 21-years-old cricketer told the media that she talked to India men's cricket national team captain, Rohit Chand and Rishabh Pant. She discussed receiving help after she was left out of the women’s team last year.
It was the last month when Rodrigues talked to them and she said that she felt blessed about it. She was ensured by both Sharma and Pant not to look at herself in a negative way. They then talked to her to prepare herself for the upcoming things.
