Guardians of the Laws of Cricket CMC reaffirmed that a run out from a non-striker while running back is within the laws of the game, but there was no end to the debate following the third and final women’s ODI between India and the England where Deepti Sharma exhausted Charlie Dean to make a clean sweep for visitors.
“No, I’m calling the batsman back,” Buttler, 32, who is recovering from a pre-World Cup calf injury, told TalkSPORT.

Moeen, the alternate captain of their current T20I series against Pakistan, echoed similar sentiments: “No, that’s not my thing.”
“I don’t think I’ll ever do it unless I’m really mad at someone. It’s in the laws and there’s nothing illegal so people who do it have the right, but I just hope it doesn’t become a common thing, or something that happens on a regular basis,” Moeen told The Telegraph.

While the Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur said they committed ‘no crime’, Deepti upon arrival in Kolkata told reporters they ‘warned’ Dean after she repeatedly backed down to the non-attacking side.
England captain briar knightwho pulled out of the show, then retaliated by accusing Deepti of “lying”.
