“No Warnings Were Given”: England Cricketer’s Big Allegation Post Deepti Sharma Run-Out Of Charlotte Dean

On Saturday, the third and final ODI between Indian women and England women came to a controversial end after all-rounder Deepti Sharma took Charlie Dean out on the non-pointing end as the batter went too far ahead when the ball was about to be released. This helped India beat England by 16 runs in the third and final ODI to take the series 3-0. Monday, after reaching India, Deepti revealed that her side warned Dean, but when they saw that she was still venturing out of her fold, they decided to rush her out.

“It was our plan because she repeatedly left the fold. We even warned her. So whatever we did was according to the rules and regulations,” Deepti Sharma said.

“We also told the umpires. But she still did it, so we had no other option,” she added.

However, England captain Heather Knight, who missed the series, said Team India has not issued any warnings and that they should not “lie”.

“The game is over, Charlie was rightly fired. India was right to win the game and the series. But no warnings were given. They don’t have to be given, so that doesn’t make the dismissal any less legitimate.” she said in a tweet.

In another tweet, she said: “But if they’re comfortable with the decision to influence the runout, India shouldn’t feel the need to justify it by lying about warnings.”

The Marylebone Cricket Club – the guardians of the laws of cricket – came out with a statement that again clarified their stance on the subject. The MCC had moved the mode of dismissal from the “unfair play” portion of their laws to the “run out” portion earlier this year, and the ICC will also approve that change from October 1.

“MCC announced changes to cricket laws this year to move the end of non-rush hour run out from Law 41 Unfair Play to Law 38 Run Out,” the statement said.


The third ODI was also Jhulan Goswami’s last international match. “Every team wants to win. We wanted to say goodbye to her by winning the match. As a team, we gave everything we could,” said Deepti.

“This is historic. For the first time we beat England in England. We won the series 3-0 and Jhulan di played a great part in it. It was her last game,” she added. “We will miss her on the field. We will follow her dedication on the field.”
