New Delhi: The Indian women’s team is currently playing an ODI series with England (India vs England) at Lord’s. In the third match of this series, Indian all-rounder Deepti Sharma run out England batsman Charlie Dean. After Deepti’s run out, now the ‘Spirit of Cricket’ is being discussed. Many veterans and sports experts of England have questioned this act of Deepti Sharma. At the same time, it has been told against the ‘Spirit of Cricket’. In this matter, now former India captain Kapil Dev has given his response.
This incident happened in the 44th over of England’s innings. While bowling, Deepti had seen England batsman Dean back up too far at the non-striker’s end. After this Deepti did that dismissal under the rules of cricket. This rule was added a few days ago to the law relating to run out at the end of a non-striker by removing it from the ‘unfair play section’.
Not only this, the Marylebone Cricket Club ie MCC also declared Charlie Dean out. But cricketers like England cricketer Sam Billings, James Anderson and Stuart Broad have spoken against this ‘spirit of cricket’.
Kapil Dev has given his opinion in this matter. He wrote in an Insta story on his Instagram, “In such a situation I think there should be a simple rule instead of a heated argument every time. Depriving the batsmen of their runs. It should be considered a short run. It’s a better solution in my mind.”
