The run out at the non-striker’s end gave Deepti Sharma the status of a hero on social media. The star all-rounder in the women’s side used her presence of mind to execute a brilliant run out to get the wicket of Charlotte Dean who was threatening to take the match away from India as she had scored 47 runs from 80 balls with 5 boundaries. She wanted to put the pressure back on the Indian bowlers but the run out by Deepti Sharma stopped her in her tracks.

The result was that India got a famous win from the jaws of defeat and it also gave India a 3-0 clean sweep against England. What Deepti Sharma did was perfectly legal and well within the laws of the game. The same rule has been cleared by the cricket governing body and it is termed as a run out at the non-striker’s end.

In a game where emotions were riding high and which had ebbs and flows all the way till the last minute, gave the superstar of Indian women’s cricket Jhulan Goswami an ideal farewell, who put in a good performance by scalping two wickets in what was her last ODI for India.

Along with Deepti Sharma who was hogging the headlines because of the run out at the non-striker’s end, Ravichandran Ashwin was also trending on twitter because he had done the same in the 2019 Indian T20 League which involved him running out Jos Butler at the non-strikers end which made a furor over the internet.

Here is the tweet

Later, he even sent out a tweet on Twitter saying that he is not the one supposed to be trending, and it should be Deepti Sharma who should be in the limelight. Deepti Sharma scored a superb fifty lower down the order to bail India out of trouble and take them to the score of 169 and then came back with the ball to pick up the big wicket of Freya Kemp.
