Deepti Sharma receives support
Indian cricketer looked confident and said with her actions that it wasn’t wrong. Later she was supported by her captain Harmanpreet Kaur in the post-conference. MCC had put this practice in fair game category this march. Along with that, ICC has also stamped this as correct and the rules will implemented from October 1st.
Shefali Vadiya on Twitter wrote, “Just saw this. Rarely tweet about sports. But what #DeeptiSharma did is nothing short of awesome. Beat the Brits at the game THEY invented, with the help of the rules THEY made! Well done.”

Five months back, Deepti Sharma was penalised for this margin and India lost a WC semi-final spot.

For all the people moaning that a warning wasn't given to Charlie Dean by Deepti Sharma. The reality is that Dean was a habitual offender leaving the non-striker's end early. No warning is needed and if anything she could have been runout at the non-striker's end much earlier. https://t.co/5JFcgh3Yul

Anchor : You are avoiding my question about Deepti Sharma's run out
Harman : I thought you will ask about the first 9 wickets, they werent easy to take either, but I back my team, we did nothing wrong, it was in laws and we will do it again if needed.

What is Mankad and how does it make difference?
The term ‘Mankad’ represents the run out that is done when the batter at non-striker end leaves the crease before the delivery. In the third ODI against England, Deepti Sharma pulled this off to dismiss English player Charlie Dean during the dramatic climax of the game.
