She broke into some popular dance moves while fielding near the boundary rope. Spotting her impromptu yet engaging performance, the crowd at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium went on to cheer for Jemimah.
During RCB’s batting in the second innings, Jemimah Rodrigues was seen matching her steps to some quirky Bollywood tracks. She went on to imitate the popular “Floss” dance move, before indulging in some “Bhangra” steps. Fans dropped a few clips of her dazzling dance performance on Twitter.
Jemimah, who has an active social media presence as well, reshared the clips from her personal handle.

Jemimah Rodrigues played a 22-run cameo from 15 deliveries in her WPL debut against RCB. Coming to bat first, Meg Lanning and Shafali Verma gave Delhi a perfect start as the openers stitched a 162-run partnership.
Lanning departed with a 43-ball 72, while Verma concluded her innings for 84 runs off 45 deliveries. Following their dismissals, Marizanne Kapp and Jemimah continued the show, steering the Capitals to a mammoth 223 runs in 20 overs.
RCB failed to pull off a promising start to the chase as they lost three batters including captain Smriti Mandhana during the first 10 overs. Pacer Tera Norris enjoyed a memorable outing as she scythed through the RCB middle-order, picking up as many as five wickets. In the end, the Smriti Mandhana-led side fell 60 runs short of the huge target.
