Controversy has arisen over Indian cricket team’s all-rounder Deepti Sharma’s run out to English batsman Charlie. Some are telling it against the spirit of the game, while some are telling run out under the rules.

He said that the fans of the England team should remember the 2019 World Cup final match before commenting on Deepti. He became the world champion only by the rule of hitting more boundaries. What Deepti did was under the rules. He had also given a warning before Mankading.
Before proceeding further in the news let me explain the controversy…

Read what his coach, who is also his brother, has to say about this…
“England lost 3-0, so there was something to be said”
Deepti Sharma’s coach and brother Sumit Sharma, while talking with Dainik NewsBust India on the runout controversy, talked about making it an issue due to the series loss to England.
Deepti’s brother Sumit Sharma is her coach. He told Dainik NewsBust India that there is a lot of hue and cry about Deepti’s run out in the third ODI from England. The run out by Deepti is in accordance with the rules. England team lost the series 3-0. In such a situation, he has something to say for this defeat. He made the run out an issue.
Sumit raised questions on England batsman Charlie Dean. Said, “Why is it that the player did not take precautions on such an occasion. When you can get out of the crease by being so free. Then a player can also get out by being alert.
“Didn’t say anything when the world cup was won”
Sumit says, “The double character of England has come to the fore on this run out. After the match against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup in 2019 and the Super Over tie, England won just because they hit more boundaries. At that time England did it. Said victory as per the rules. Now that they have lost the series 3-0, they don’t see the spirit of the run out. England shouldn’t have done that.
Deepti quote – doesn’t matter
When Deepti’s brother was asked what happened to Deepti in this regard, he said that there was not much talk. Just said that there is a lot of controversy about the out. To this, Deepti said that it was done under the run out rule. His captain, all the players of the team are with him. So it doesn’t matter what the England team says.
Cricketer Deepti Sharma’s father Bhagwan Sharma and brother Sumit Sharma say that Deepti has run out under the rules of cricket.
Deepti’s father said – proud of the daughter
Deepti’s father also supported his daughter on the run out controversy. He said that it is not that Deepti did not get out in the first place. Deepti told him that she had been noticing Charlie Dean for a long time. She was coming out of the crease before throwing her hair. He also complained about this to the umpire. But, when she started coming out too much, Deepti ran her out. What Deepti did is fine. A player makes every effort for the victory of his team.
Many memes are being made on Deepti
Many memes have surfaced after Deepti’s runout. In Aamir Khan’s Lagaan movie, Tipu is shown getting run out in a similar manner during the match. Now showing that scene and Deepti’s run out together in the memes, it is written that the revenge of the film Lagaan has now been taken. At the same time, Delhi Police has also used the photo of Deepti’s run out for awareness while driving.
