In what was a controversial finish to a low-scoring affair, Charlotte Dean, who battled hard with a 80-ball 47 to keep England afloat, backed up too far at the non-striker’s end as Deepti Sharma whipped the bails off to leave the batter in dismay and the England camp in shock. Opinions were starkly divided on social media, with some suggesting that Dean was not trying to steal any yards while others applauding Deepti for her presence of mind.
Jhulan Goswami contributed with 2-30 in her farewell game, capping off her ODI career with 255 wickets to go with 44 wickets in Tests and 56 in T20Is, as India bowled England out for 153 to ensure the senior pro who pulled down the curtains on an illustrious 20-year career, bowed out on a victorious note.
A controversial ending but…India win by 16 runs and complete a series sweep against England. 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/gsBpqDcXNp
