Third one-day international, Lord’s
India 169 all out (45.4 overs): Deepti 68 (106), Mandhana 50 (79); Cross 4-26
England 153 all out (43.3 overs): Dean 46 (80); Thakur 4-29
India won by 16 runs, India win series 3-0

India completed a 3-0 series whitewash over England in the third and final one-day international after a controversial dismissal by Deepti Sharma.

England required 17 runs to win, with one wicket left, when bowler Deepti stopped in her delivery stride to run out Charlie Dean at the non-striker’s end to secure the victory.

The game was reaching a tense conclusion when Dean was dismissed for 46 at Lord’s.

England were visibly aggrieved at the dismissal, which is within the laws of the game but seen by many as against the spirit of cricket.

It was England women’s first game at Lord’s since their World Cup triumph over India in 2017.
