There was a lot of ruckus in the third ODI between India and England women’s cricket team. India won this match by 16 runs, but the last wicket of the English team i.e. Charlotte Dean was shown the way to the pavilion by Deepti Sharma while doing Mankading. Since this incident, two camps have been formed on social media, one group is calling Deepti Sharma’s action shameful and the other believes that whatever Deepti has done according to the rules, so she should not be called wrong. Meanwhile, another video has surfaced from which it is clear that the plan to make Charlotte Dean Mankading was not Deepti’s but Captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s.
Captain Harman had indicated:
In the viral video of this incident, it can be clearly seen that before Deepti Sharma throws the ball, Captain Harmanpreet gestures to her bowlers to do Mankading. Deepti Sharma executed the plan as soon as the captain’s signal was received and while delivering the ball, seeing the non-striker coming out of the crease, he blew it. Seeing her master plan being successful, Harmanpreet Kaur also has a smile on her face.
Let us inform that since the Mankading of Deepti Sharma, the English fans and the players of the England team are seen surrounding the bowler. Deepti Sharma’s name also trended rapidly on social media. From Sam Billings to James Anderson, the bowler has been criticized.
In the three-match series, the Indian team has badly defeated England.
