Explained: Why Charlie Dean's 'controversial' dismissal left internet divided

The third ODI match between India and England on Saturday was full of drama and controversy. It will be remembered by fans for two reasons: the controversial but legal elimination of Charlie Dean from England by Deepti Sharma and Jhulan Goswami’s retirement from international cricket. In the midst of this, another cricketer was also popular: R Ashwin. We explain what happened in the match and what the controversy is about:

What happened in Saturday’s game?

India defeated England by 16 runs in the third and final ODI to win the series 3-0. India, while batting first, put up a poor score of 169. India kept losing wickets, limiting them to this low score. Allrounder Deepti Sharma scored the highest score with an unbeaten 68 out of 106 balls.

England’s batting order collapsed easily. They faltered at 65 for 7, but the team managed to reach 103 for 8 with the efforts of Charlie Dean. Dean scored the highest with 47, while captain Amy Jones contributed 28. But their efforts could not lead the team to victory as India managed to limit England to 153.

Dean, who had sparked England’s hopes, was sacked by Deepti Sharma when she hit 47 runs.

Dean and Freya Davies were on the pitch for England. Dean was at the end of the non-rush hour when Sharma was delivering. Before Sharma released the ball, she noticed that Dean had already left the fold. Sharma took advantage of this and took the bail.

Why the internet was split

Many people, including former cricketer Virender Sehwag, were behind the Indian team, while some like Stuart Broad criticized this type of runout dubbed ‘Mankad’. The internet was also divided about the dismissal. While some supported the Indian team, others supported the England side.

The term means that a bowler can outrun the batter at the non-striker’s end if he/she tries to step out of the crease before the bowler releases the ball. It is often seen that the batters on the non-striker end step out of the fold well in advance as a lead, to run between the wickets.

The name was coined after former Indian cricketer Vinoo Mankad fired Australian Bill Brown on the non-striker’s side in 1948 when he left the crease before the ball was released.

What do the ICC rules say about such a run?

This sparked a lot of controversy, but it’s perfectly legal under the rules of the ICC. Recently, while adjusting the game conditions, the ICC moved these kinds of layoffs from “unfair play” to “run out”.

The MCC Law 41.16.1 states: “If the non-striker is out of his/her ground at any time from the time the ball comes into play to when the bowler would normally be expected to release the ball , may the striker is in danger of becoming exhausted.”

What do experts say about this incident?

Former ICC referee Shavir Tarapore said: “While the law allows such dismissals, I personally believe that this could have been prevented by the Indian bowler. If you watch the dismissal video closely, you will notice that Sharma was deliberately stopped. The referee stood at the time about to declare it a dead ball. But he didn’t.” He went on to say, “I believe such layoffs are against the spirit of the game.”

After Saturday’s incident, Aswin was trending on Twitter.

He tweeted: “Why the hell are you trending Ashwin? Tonight is about another bowling hero @Deepti_Sharma06.”
