England women's cricketer Charlotte Dean has vowed never to get out of her crease before the bowler has finished delivering the ball after she was run out by India's spin bowling all-rounder Deepti Sharma in the third and final WODI at Lord's on Saturday, September 24.
It so happened that images of Dean coming out of her crease at the non-strikers' throughout her innings end kept doing rounds on social media after a section of the fans and former as well as current cricketers questioned Deepti's sportsmanship spirit.
An interesting end to the summer: Charlotte Dean
"An interesting end to the summer. What an honour it is to play at lords in England colours. I guess I'll stay in my crease from now on", Charlotte Dean wrote on her Instagram story.
Charlotte was seen crying bitterly after the third umpire made the decision in the favour of the bowler as India Women registered a 16-run win to seal the series 3-0.
Meanwhile, the custodians of cricket laws, the MCC on Sunday, September 25 also issued a statement that read that Deepti Sharma followed the rules while running out Charlotte Dean at the non-strikers' end there was no act of unfair play on any manner.
At the same time, even Deepti herself made it clear that Dean was warned several times not to leave the crease in such a manner and since she did not heed the rules despite repeated warnings, Sharma finally decided to take matters into her own hands.
"It was historic for sure. For the first time, we defeated England in their own country and won the series 3-0. That was our plan because she was repeatedly doing it and we had warned them too. We had also informed the umpires. But still, she was right there so there wasn't much we could do. We did everything according to the rules and guidelines," Deepti told the reporters upon the team's arrival in India.
