In fact, during a conversation with Revsportz on Monday, Jhulan said that it is under International Cricket Council (ICC) laws to run Dean out at the non-striker’s end because she went one foot beyond the crease. He said, ‘Nothing is wrong. I don’t want to say anything. It is under ICC law. Did Deepti do anything illegal? Did this happen for the first time? I don’t think there is any need to discuss it. She was ahead of the crease. Not in millimeters, but one foot ahead. If anyone is taking advantage, there is a law for him.
Not only this, Captain Harmanpreet Kaur also supported Deepti Sharma. After the match, he said, ‘I thought you would ask about the first nine wickets because even taking them was not easy. I don’t think we have done anything new. I think it shows your awareness of what the batsmen are doing. I will support my player because I don’t think he has done anything which is not in ICC rules.
At the same time, Deepti Sharma also told that, ‘This was our plan because she was doing this again and again, we had already warned her. We did our work according to the rules and guidelines. He said, ‘We told the umpire, yet she was going out. In such a situation, we could not do anything. “Every team has to win,” he said. In Jhulan Goswami’s last match, we wanted us to bid him farewell with a win. According to him, we did what we could as a team.
