Rodrigues hit an astounding 17 boundaries and a six as Superchargers chased down a target of 131 in 85 balls after 'Fire' posted 131 for 8 in 100 balls at the Headingley.

The innings gains more significance as Superchargers were reduced to 19 for 4 after 18 balls but Rodrigues' swift counter-attack changed the course of the match in a flash.

Rodrigues had a lean patch through the home series against South Africa and the recently concluded limited overs matches in England as she was dropped from the playing XI during both series.

On the day, she showed her attacking instincts with some delectable strokes all round the wicket  as West Indies off-spinner Hayley Matthews was taken for 29 off 15 deliveries including six boundaries.

She didn't spare any of the bowlers as 17 out of the 21 fours that Superchargers hit came off her blade. Fittingly, she got the 'Player of the Match' award.

Brief Scores: Welsh Fire 131/8 in 100 balls (Hayley Matthews 30 off 20 balls, LInsey Smith 3/14) lost to Northern Superchargers 131/4 in 85 balls (Jemimah Rodrigues 92 not out off 43 balls).
