JSW Sports adds Jemimah Rodrigues to its talent roster

Jemimah is the only second woman Indian cricketer to smash a double-century in ODI cricket.

JSW Sports has got onboard the 21-year-old Indian woman cricketer, Jemimah Rodrigues in a multi-year association. In this agreement, the sports agency will manage the brand and commercial partnerships of Rodrigues.

Jemimah is the only second woman Indian cricketer to smash a double-century in ODI cricket. The youngster achieved this milestone in 2017 while playing for Mumbai against Saurashtra. The 21-year old donned the national jersey for the first time against South Africa in February 2018 in a T20I fixture. A month later, she also made her ODI debut against Australia.

On this collaboration, Rodrigues said, “I’m really excited to have signed with JSW Sports. Over the last decade, the JSW Group, through JSW Sports, has done a lot for several sports across the country, and I am really happy to know that they believe in my potential. I look forward to working closely with their team over the coming years.”

Divyanshu Singh, Head of Sales and Marketing at JSW Sports, said, “We’re really happy to welcome Jemimah to the JSW Sports family. At JSW Sports, we are big supporters of women in Sport, and we believe she has immense potential to grow both as an athlete, and a brand. We’re looking forward to working closely with her.”

With the newest addition of Jemimah, the sports arm of JSW Group has athletes like Rishabh Pant, Kagiso Rabada, Axar Patel, Neeraj Chopra and Sakshi Malik on its talent roster.

In October 2021, JSW Sports entered into an MOU with the Saudi Arabian Cricket Federation (SACF).
