Women’s cricketing stalwart Jhulan Goswami played her last international game at Lord ' s where India faced England in the third ODI. After a poor batting display, the Women in Blue pulled off an incredible bowling performance as they defended 170 and defeated England by 16 runs.
But the end of the match was controversial as the Indian all-rounder Deepti Sharma ran out Charlotte Dean at the non-striker’s end. After the match, Indian captain Harmanpreet Kaur was questioned about the Dean’s dismissal in the post-match presentation. But the skipper gave a savage response which won Indian fans' heart.
The Indian skipper expressed how she hoped to talk about all the ten wickets as they were difficult to pick. “To be honest, I thought you will ask about all ten wickets because they were not easy to take,” said Harmanpreet.
She then addressed how the runout at the non-striker’s end is part of the cricketing rule book and hence she will be backing her player in this situation. She said “It's a part of the game. I don't think we have done something new, you can always take those chances.”
“It shows that you are aware about what the batters are doing. I will back my player because I don't think she has done anything that isn't in the ICC rules. Everything is part of the game. At the end of the day, a win is a win and you need to enjoy that.”
