When Shafali launched an all-out attack – slapping short balls through the middle and flat kicks to the side of the leg, Rodrigues slipped into the role of second fiddle; his contribution being all 12 races when the half-century stand was raised. Then, when India were down 3 for 16 in the space of four overs to go from a comfortable 76 for 1 to 92 for 4, it echoed the calm as India continued to drive forward. That pass included a terrible mix-up with Shafali, whom Rodrigues more than made up for by beating to go an unbeaten 46-56. It was only his seventh in T20I over 49 innings.
Four nights after she announced herself with another flurry of ball for the ages against Australia, she was back. On her third innings ball, she returned a Deandra Dottin charge for a duck. Two bullets in her second, she had Hayley Matthews picking midway. Then she persisted for a third straight time in what was an excellent Harmanpreet captaincy, and Renuka all but sealed it with the wickets of Kycia Knight – played on – and Aaliyah Alleyne, which was done by a sneaky in – swinger she left on a length to find her flattened stumps. At 19 for 4 from five overs, Barbados were starting the inevitable.
India’s spinners then entered the game and rejoiced, Pooja Vastrakar’s comeback was given game time before bigger battles and their defenders took hold which had the coach howling with excitement Ramesh Powar. The Australia Ghosts, where they let him slip away from a winning position, weren’t going to have another field day. It was as categorical as possible.
