‘No warnings got’ Knight refutes Deepti’s claims

LONDON: England Women’s cricket crew captain Heather Knight joined the continuing debate concerning the controversial finish of the third Women’s ODI between India and England.

The debate sparked but once more when India’s bowler Deepti Sharma, who mankad England’s Charlie Dean to finish whitewash over the hosts, mentioned that the crew had ‘repeatedly warned’ Dean for leaving the crease too early.

“We did things as per the rules and guidelines,” Deepti mentioned after touchdown in India.

“We told the umpires as well, but she was there [outside the crease]. We couldn’t do much,” she was quoted as saying by the Indian media.

Deepti’s assertion, nevertheless, didn’t go effectively with Knight, who refuted the previous’s claims about repeated warnings and mentioned that ‘India shouldn’t really feel the necessity to justify it by mendacity.’

“The game is over, Charlie was dismissed legitimately. India were deserved winners of the match and the series. But no warnings were given,” Knight wrote on Twitter.

“They don’t have to be given, so it hasn’t made the dismissal any much less respectable.

“But if they’re comfortable with the decision to affect the run out, India shouldn’t feel the need to justify it by lying about warnings.”
