I'll just stay in my crease from now on: Charlie Dean

England spinner Charlie Dean commented about her run-out at the bowler's end by Deepti Sharma

England offspinner Charlie Dean commented on her run-out at the bowler's end by Deepti Sharma in the third ODI against India at Lord's by saying she will be cautious of backing up.

Chasing 170 in the final match of the series, England needed 17 runs to win with just one wicket in hand as Indian offspinner Deepti Sharma removed the bails after she spotted Dean leaving the crease before the run-up was completed.

Third umpire deemed the dismissal legitimate as India swept the series 3-0 as Dean was left in tears. While the ICC had recently moved the run-out at the non-striker's end from 'Unfair Play' section to the 'Run-Out' section, there were further comments between India and England players over the nature of the dismissal.

On arrival in India, Deepti said that she had warned Dean multiple times and had also informed the umpires in build-up which did not sit well with England captain Heather Knight who tweeted that the Indians did not have to lie about the warnings when the dismissal was according to the rulebook.

The heated discussions spilled over on social media, Dean jokingly re-enacted a run-out at the bowler's end in the domestic Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy final on Sunday. 

On Tuesday, she posted on Instagram saying: "An interesting end to the summer. What an honour it is to play at lords in England colours. 🦁 I guess I’ll just stay in my crease from now on🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️"
