For the first time, all-rounder Deepti Sharma spoke out about the contentious run-out of Charlotte Dean during the third one-day international between India and England on Saturday at Lord’s. She said that she removed the bails at the non-end strikers only after issuing several warnings to the opposition. After Dean and Freya Davies’ last-wicket partnership of 35 important runs, which left ENG-W needing 17 runs to win, Deepti halted in her bowling stride and ripped the bails off when she realized Dean was beyond her crease.

The event quickly became out of control, with some English experts and ex-cricketers criticizing India for the whole “Spirit of Cricket” controversy even though it was mostly legal. Many believed that the Indian team should have given a warning, which Deepti’s major admission has now verified.

“Certainly, it was historic. We beat England in their nation for the first time, taking the series 3-0. We had warned them as well since she kept doing it, so that was our strategy. The umpires had also been told. However, she was still nearby, leaving nothing we could do. Everything we did complied with the norms and regulations “After the crew arrived in India, Deepti spoke with the media.

Consequently, terminations like the one we saw yesterday are not permitted “It ought to put an end to the discussion.
