As long as the team management found the right balance,” Rodrigues said. “I did have that intent, going out there and doing my bit for the team. I kept questioning when will my time come while sitting on the bench,” said Rodrigues

“The runs I scored in The Hundred really helped me gain confidence and I think I could tour Australia owing to that form,” said the young batter
