New Delhi: The Indian women’s team won a landslide victory against England in the third ODI (INDW vs ENGW). However, many questions have also been raised on this victory. Actually, in the third match, there is a debate about Dipti Sharma more than the victory of the Indian team. Deepti had Mankading (run-out) English batsman Charlotte Dean. Since then, English cricketers have raised questions on him. But, James Anderson. Many England cricketers like Stuart Broad find it against the spirit of the game. However, running out like this is not against the ICC rules.
Broad tweeted, ‘Both sides have their views. I personally don’t like winning matches like this. If other people think otherwise, I am happy about that too. Whereas, James Anderson said, ‘I never understood what the players needed to do. Is she stealing on the field? Sam Billings tweeted, ‘Not even looking at the other end in the delivery stride.’
I find the debate of the Mankad really interesting. So many views from either side. I personally wouldn’t like to win a match like that, also, very happy for others to feel differently https://t.co/BItCNJZqYB

However, England’s very own batsman Alex Hales has given a great answer on this runout. Replying to England’s Sam Billings questioning Deepti Sharma, Hales wrote, “As long as the ball does not go out of hand, it should not be too difficult for a non-striker to stay inside the crease.”
It shouldn’t be difficult for the non striker to stay in their crease til the ball has left the hand…

At the same time, Ravichandran Ashwin has also reacted to this. He also praised Deepti while having fun in his own style. Ashwin wrote, “Ashwin, why are you trending on Twitter? Today is another bowling hero Deepti Sharma’s day.”
Why the hell are you trending Ashwin? Tonight is about another bowling hero @deepti_Sharma06

The Indian team had a very poor start. But later Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma handled the innings by adding 58 runs. Opener Smriti Mandhana also scored 50 runs in 79 balls.
Whereas after the dismissal of Mandhana, the wickets started falling one after the other. As a result, the entire team was bundled out for 169 runs in 45.4 overs. During this, Deepti Sharma played an unbeaten 68 off 106 balls for India. Which included seven fours. Apart from Smriti Mandhan and Deepti, only Pooja Vastrakar (22) could reach double digits one.
