INDW vs ENGW: “We warned her”- Deepti Sharma gives her first reaction to “Mankad” run-out of Charlie Dean in 3rd ODI at Lord’s

Deepti Sharma: INDW vs ENGW: India registered a famous 3-0 whitewash over England at home on Saturday. This was the first win for India in England since 1999. But it didn’t end in a very delightful way, or one could say it created a little controversy the way the last wicket of the hosts fell down at Lord’s, which resulted in India’s 3-0 win.

India’s star all-rounder Deepti Sharma mankad English batter Charlie Dean to win the match for India. That incident caused chaos in the cricketing world. Fans and many present and former cricketers were divided into two totally different sides. Many English cricketers and former players criticized the action of Deepti and termed it against the “spirit of cricket”.

Well, on the other hand, there were many who came out in support of the Indian all-rounder. In the end, India won the match by 16 runs and won the series to give a perfect farewell to veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami. However, before that run-out, England’s women’s team were looking to chase down the target.

England were at 153/9 with a last wicket partnership of 35 runs between Charlie Dean and Freya Davies (10). Dean was batting at 47 runs and was looking to win the match for the home team. But seeing her leaving the crease, Deepti Sharma ran her out on the third ball of the 43rd over. England needed 17 runs off 39 balls before that.

And after reaching India, Deepti also shared her first reaction to all the incidents. She revealed that India gave many warnings to the English batter and also told the umpires on the field. She said, “That was our plan because she was repeatedly doing it and we had warned them too. We had also informed the umpires. But still she was right there so there wasn’t much we could do. We did everything according to the rules and guidelines.”

What is Mandad in cricket and it’s rule?

The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) accepted the law of Mankad this year in March as a normal mode of dismissal for running out the non-striker who tries to leave the crease before the ball leaves the bowler’s hand. The ICC also removes it from Law 41 (the list of unfair plays) and adds it to Law 38 (a way to run out).
