Twitter Flooded with Support of Deepti Sharma for her Legal Run-out

Twitter came in support of Deepti Sharma after her legal run-out of Charlie Dean vs England in the 3rd T20I   

3-0 is what the series scorecard read after a dominant Whitewash by Team India Women vs England in the ODI series. But guess what, the entire focus of the discussion was a fair and legal run-out (previously mankading) of Charlie Dean by Deepti Sharma.

Before we come to actually incident, we need to take a moment to appreciate the amazing performance by the Indian Women’s team. They have created history by whitewashing the England team 3-0 in the ODI series for the first time in England. 

Coincidentally, this was also Jhulan Goswami’s last International match of her career. Legend Jhulan Goswami, aged 39 years retired after 20 years of service for the Indian Women team. One of the finest bowlers the world has ever seen has taken 355 career wickets; the most by any bowler in Women’s cricket. 

Now, coming to the actual incident. England needed 17 runs to win, and they had only their last pair at the crease. The set Charlie Dean was at the non-striker end when Deepti was about to release the ball. Just when Deepti was planning to release the ball, she saw Charlie was backing up quite far. 

Seeing a potential run-out opportunity, Deepti ran out Charlie Dean in a completely fair and legal manner under the ICC laws (Revised only recently). The run-out was a completely legal affair, But as usual, the England cricket fans blew out of proportion to ridicule the run-out by bringing the spirit of cricket into the discussion.

However, Twitter was filled with support for the run-out by Deepti Sharma. Here are some of the best relations on the completely fair and legal runout as per MCC laws. Do check out the video which clearly shows Dean was clearly out of the crease even before the ball was about to be released by Deepti. Of course, she didn’t release as Dean was clearly out of the crease
