Deepti Sharma claimed India cautioned Charlie Dean about backing up before driving him out

Prior to controversially running Dean out in a one-day international, India’s Deepti Sharma claimed that the team regularly cautioned England tailender Charlie Dean about backing up at the non-end. striker’s

The ICC last week determined that the unusual method of dismissal, which was called after the Indian all-rounder Vinoo Mankad who ran out Australia batsman Bill Brown who was backing up in a 1948 Sydney Test, was legal.

However, the cricket world is split over Deepti’s decision to run out Dean, who sobbed after being removed on 47 as England fell short of their 170-run goal over the weekend. The move was long seen to be against the spirit of the game.

Former England men’s captain Michael Vaughan tweeted, “You obviously don’t practice all your life to win a game using that approach… and I know batters should prepare to remain below the line, but it sucks watching a game won like way.”

However, Deepti, whose side won the series 3-0, insisted that nothing had gone wrong.

Off-spinner Deepti informed media upon the team’s arrival in Kolkata, “That was our strategy since she was continually doing it and we had warned them too.

“The umpires had also been told. However, she was still nearby, leaving nothing we could do. We followed all the regulations and instructions exactly.”

Indian cricketers and commentators sided with Deepti; India captain Harmanpreet Kaur said: “I don’t believe that was any wrongdoing.”

The MCC, the guardians of the laws of sport, reaffirmed that the dismissal was within the bounds of the contest.

“MCC continues to advise non-strikers to stay in their area until they have seen the bowler release the ball. Consequently, terminations like the one we saw yesterday are not permitted.” In a statement, it was mentioned.

Even if the outcome of yesterday’s match was unexpected, it was fairly officiated and shouldn’t be seen as anything more.

The discussion on social media was also joined by India’s Ravichandran Ashwin, whose Mankad run-out of England’s Jos Buttler in an IPL match in 2019 drew much criticism.

He suggested on Twitter that the wicket be given to the bowler for having “presence of mind” under extreme pressure and understanding the societal stigma that would follow.
