On Saturday, in the Commonwealth Games 2022 semifinal between India and England Jemimah played yet another crucial knock to help her side score a fight-worthy total. 

Earlier, against Barbados as well, Jemimah played an unbeaten 56-run knock, and she kept her rich vein of form going in the semifinal as well.

Netizens meanwhile were full of praise for Jemimah after her incredible turnaround, from being out of the team to becoming one of the most crucial players.
