Charlotte Dean exhausted: the captain says he will support my players
Sent to bat, India was all for a paltry 169, but it proved enough in the end.
The Indians managed to pull off a victory as Charlotte Dean (47) was deemed controversially exhausted, for backing down.
Dean, who nearly secured a stunning win for the hosts after going shocked 65 for seven and then 103 for eight, was off his field and Deepti Sharma was content to hold the ball to withdraw the deposits, leaving the English speechless.
Asked about it, the India captain said: “To be honest, I thought you would ask about the 10 wickets, which was not easy to take as well. It’s part of the game. I don’t think we did something new. It shows your conscience, what the hitters do.
“I will support my players, she didn’t do anything outside of the rules. After the first game we discussed, we really wanted to do well, we have that potential. We want to continue that kind of cricket.”
The Indian skipper, who was also named Player of the Series, added: “That wicket wasn’t easy to beat, our batters did a decent job. We were looking for 170 after losing four wickets.
“After that, we knew we had the pace attack and the spin attack to take the wickets. We never thought we were offside.”
On her own form, she said: “I’m enjoying my time, I want to be there for the team because if I’m there the team is in positive mode. Today was unfortunate but otherwise , I was watching the ball and hitting accordingly.”
Captain of England Amy Joneswho contributed 28 and sought to extricate himself from a precarious situation with charlie deanfelt they needed partnerships.
“Not happy with the result, we played very well, we just needed a bigger partnership. The latest dismissal divides opinion. I’m not a fan but it depends on what India thinks about it. is in order, hope it doesn’t take the summer shine.
“A massive learning experience. I learned the hard way in the 2nd ODI with some practical mistakes. The girls have been supportive. I can’t wait to get Heath (Knight) back. The average age is quite low and capseyKempy and it’s been a brilliant summer for us.
Of Dean, she said: “She looked good there, she soaked up the pressure and got down on her knees – I’m not sure she’d come out any other way.”
