India women created history after winning a series in England after 23 years. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led Indian team is on a winning frenzy and the team has done exceptionally well. Speaking of the series, the Indian skipper led the team from the front in the first two matches. 


They left no stones unturned to give her best for the team. Smriti Mandhana, at the other hand, gave a fiery start in all the matches. However, in the third ODI, the Indian team had to face a backlash as Deepti Sharma clinched the win with a runout at the non-striker’s end. 

To comment further on the incident, Charlotte Dean went a bit further out of the crease, and Deepti Sharma decided to run her out. Albeit it was within the rules, the English cricketers slammed the bowler for clinching the win in that manner. However, Deepti Sharma opened up on the same after arriving in India. 

On her arrival, the journalists did not spare a second to cover her up and come up with questions. One journalist questioned on the run-out and asked if it was planned.


“Kuchh nahi, wo plan tha hmara. Jo rules me jo guidelines hain uske according him humne kiya ( Nothing, that was our plan. We have done according to the guidelines which are in the rules ),” Deepti Sharma said.

Further, the Indian star said that the team had already warned about Dean to umpires. She did not shy away from admitting that it was within rules and backed herself up for the act.


"Haan haan bilkul. Wo to umpires ko bola tha hmlogon ne (Yes yes absolutely. We had informed the umpires that she was stepping out of the crease multiple times)," she said further.

Harmanpreet Kaur, the Indian skipper backed the team and said that she was happy with the win. Further, she said that she would back the team on any given day and lauded Deepti Sharma for the same.

"To be honest, I thought you will ask about all the 10 wickets which was not easy to take as well . It's part of the game I don't think we have done something new. It shows your awareness, what batters are doing. I will back my players, she hasn't done something outside the rules. At the end of the day a win is a win and we will take that," Harmanpreet Kaur said.
