Jhulan Goswami's last one-day international had all the ingredients to make it a match to remember for a long time. While Team India registered its maiden clean sweep on English soil and gave a befitting tribute to the legendary pacer, the match ended in an unprecedented fashion leaving England's tailender batter Charlotte Dean in tears.

While Team India appeared favourites midway to clinch the historic match, England's lower-order batter Charlotte Dean put a prize on her wicket as she took her side closer to the victory. 

The 21-year-old right-handed cricketer was putting her best performance in the middle and stitching a crucial partnership with other tailenders when presence of mind from Deepti Sharma, well within the laws of the game, left the England cricketer with a broken heart and teary eyes.

It all happened when England needed just 17 runs with plenty of balls left to be bowled and Charlotte was looking firm to take England over the winning line, 25-year-old right-arm off break Deepti Sharma stunned the batter and Lord's spectators by dismissing Charlotte when she ran the non-striker Charlotte out who had left her crease before she had released the ball. 

It all happened in the 44th over of the 2nd innings when Deepti Sharma was about to bowl the delivery but sensed that Charlotte was out of the crease at the non-striker end.
 
Deepti watched all this and calmly knocked the bails off. The rules of the game shattered Charlotte's hope of scripting one of the finest victories for England and simultaneously brought a happy smile to the Indian camp, who were once looking tensed with Charlotte's incredible composed and valiant innings.


 


With that dismissal, Harmanpreet Kaur fulfilled her wish to give a fitting tribute to the legendary pacer by sealing the series 3-0. Notably, Jhulan Goswami picked two wickets in the game and finished her illustrious international career with 355 wickets across all formats, the most by any women cricketer at the international stage.
