India won the final One-Day International (ODI) match of the three-match ODI series against England at the Lord’s Cricket Ground on Saturday, September 24, and whitewashed the series 3-0.

Deepti Sharma ran out Charlie Dean at the non-striker’s end for backing up too far, and India won the match by 16 runs in a low-scoring game. Jhulan Goswami was playing his last international match for India and it ended with a touch of controversy.

Player of the match, Renuka Thakur took 4/29 as India bowled out England for 153 in the 44th over, chasing a total of 170 runs. Jhulan Goswami and Rajeshwari Gayakwad took two wickets.

England lost their ninth wicket with the score 118 runs on the board as Goswami dismissed Kate Cross with a big in-swinger. Indian legendary fast bowler tried to pick one more wicket to finish her career on a high note.

Charlie Dean (47) and Freya Davies* (10) put on a 35-run partnership for the last wicket before Sharma removed Dean, who looked dangerous, as England needed just 17 runs to win while chasing 170.

In the 44th over, Deepti Sharma ran out Charlie Dean as she moved outside the crease at the non-strikers’ end, before the bowler ended his delivery stride. Third umpire upheld India’s appeal and ruled that the dismissal was legal. This Dismissal is no longer referred to be mankading and unfair. As per the new rules, it is a runout dismissal.
