India women’s team registered a 3-0 clean sweep over England after winning the final ODI by 16 runs. Even with England nine wickets down, Charlie Dean almost took the hosts to the brink of victory. However, Deepti Sharma ran her out at the non-striker’s end as she was taking undue advantage, to seal India’s win. The 20-year-old was heartbroken as she walked away in tears after shaking hands with the Indian cirkceter. Dean had walked in with England reeling at 65 for seven while chasing 170.

Dean put on a 38-run partnership with skipper, Amy Jones. Even after Jones and Kate Cross were dismissed in quick succession, Dean kept England ticking in the chase. She was eventually running out on 47 by Deepti as India won the game by 16 runs to sweep the series.

Notably, this was Jhulan Goswami’s last international match, as she had decided to retire after this game, Jhulan bows out of the sport, having played 12 Tests, 204 ODIs and 68 T20Is for the Indian women’s team. Having taken two wickets in the match, Jhulan ends her career with 255 ODI wickets, the most by a women’s player in the format. She also took 44 Tests and 56 T20I wickets.

Veteran England fast bowlers Stuart Broad and Jimmy Anderson expressed their disapproval over the controversial run out in the third ODI between India and England women’s teams.
