There was a lot of ruckus in the third and last T20 between India and England at Lord’s. The controversy over Mankading run out is not even taking its name to calm down. England captain Heather Knight, who is recovering from a hip injury, has now added fuel to the fire. Knight says that the Indian women is lying to the team. If Heather Knight is to be believed, Deepti Sharma did not warn Charlie Dean before running out.
India beat England by 16 runs on Saturday when all-rounder Deepti Sharma ran out Dean (47), England’s last batsman as she had gone too far from the crease before the ball was bowled at the bowling end. The England team was unhappy about the dismissal of Dean in this way and after this a debate started about ‘sportsmanship’
After returning home, Deepti on Monday revealed that Charlie Dean was cautioned several times about stepping out of the crease before being run out. Knight, however, denied Deepti’s claim in a series of tweets.
Knight wrote on Twitter, ‘The match is over. Charlie is legitimately out. India deserved to win the match and series but no warnings were given. There was no need to give it, it doesn’t make getting out any less legitimate. But if they are comfortable with the decision to run out, then India should not feel the need to justify it by lying about the warning.
