Rodrigues came into limelight when she became just the second women to score a double century in U-19 women’s cricket. Smriti Mandhana, the India opener, was the first one to do so when she played an innings of 224 against Gujarat.

Rodrigues is yet to play any first-class or List A game and got selected in the India second string side purely by her superlative performance in junior cricket.
