India’s experienced all-rounder Deepti Sharma made headlines over the past two days. Upon her return to India after defeating England on their home soil by 3-0 in the ODI series, she finally opened up about Charlotte Dean’s wicket from the final ODI at Lord’s and said that they had planned about running her out on the non-striker’s end.

During the final few overs of England’s chase, India required just one wicket to win the game and complete a 3-0 series whitewash. But England’s tailenders kept the match going, and they were very close to finishing the chase. As the game became intense, Sharma ran Dean out when the latter started walking before Deepti bowled the delivery.

However, Deepti Sharma returned to India on Monday, September 26, after concluding the England tour, where the reporters asked her about the run-out incident and she shared her views.

Speaking of the wicket, she said: “It was a part of our plans. We had warned about it earlier as well, but she kept leaving the crease before the delivery. We followed the rules and the guidelines, that’s it. Every team wants to win, and we wanted to give a proper farewell to Jhulan Goswami by ending the series on a winning note. As a team, we put in all the effort that we could. We had also informed the umpires that she had been leaving the crease early, but still, she kept repeating it and we could not do anything about that.”
