In the third One-Day International at Lord’s in London on Friday, India Women narrowly defeated England Women by 16 runs. The victory enabled them to clinch a 3-0 whitewash in Jhulan Goswami’s final international contest before his retirement, after they had already won their second-ever ODI series in England. England was on their final wicket and needed more than 50 overs to reach their 170 run target. Charlie Dean, who was batting at No. 9, appeared to have other ideas, and he may possibly lead them to an unexpected victory. When Deepti Sharma concluded her innings with a “Mankad” run out, everything came to an end.
England lost wickets frequently while attempting to reach a 170 run mark. Dean, who was batting at No. 9, appeared to have other ideas, which may help the hosts pull off an unexpected victory. However, Deepti ended Dean’s inning with a run out while backing up, putting an end to everything.
Billings stated, “There’s surely not a person who has played the game that thinks this is acceptable? Just not cricket…” “Well within the laws but not in the spirit. Just my opinion… the law should be changed back to a warning system or penalty runs for excessive backing up for eg”.
However, in his first response to their tweets, Ashwin sided with Deepti and questioned the English couple’s understanding of “social stigma,” believing that the Indian women’s spinner deserved “a courage medal.”
When she dismissed Freya Kemp at Lord’s, who could only conjure five runs off 10 balls, Deepti demonstrated an all-around effort. She performed well with the bat in addition to the ball. She was successful in scoring seven fours while compiling an unbroken 68-run innings off of 106 balls.
To sweep the three-match series, India Women defeated England in the third and final ODI. As cricket legend Jhulan Goswami concluded her international career with a victory, it became a special game for team India.
