England skipper Heather Knight came up with serious allegations against Harmanpreet Kaur-lead Team India after Deepti Sharma revealed that she warned Charlie Dean several times before running her out at the non-striker's end.

For the unversed, the India all-rounder Deepti Sharma, in the third ODI ran out Dean at the non-striker's end to help India decimate England Women by 16 runs and complete a historic 3-0 clean sweep over the hosts in the ODI series.

Meanwhile, Sharma, on her return to India on Monday confirmed that a warning was given to Charlie Dean before the dismissal and also the team informed the on-field umpires about the same before the England batter was run out at the non-striker's end.


Heather Knight Accuses Team India of Lying 

Reacting to Deepti Sharma's statement, the captain of England Women's team Heather Knight claimed that team India didn’t give any warning before running Dean out at the non-striker's end and they shouldn’t justify it by lying since the game is over now.

Heather Knight took to Twitter to accuse Team India of lying over the matter. Here's what she wrote in her tweet: 

“The game is over. Charlie was dismissed legitimately; India deserved the winner of the match and the series. But no warnings were given. They don’t need to be given, so it hasn’t made the dismissal any less legitimate. But if they’re comfortable with the decision to affect the run-out, India shouldn’t feel the need to justify by lying about warnings."

“But if they’re comfortable with the decision to affect the run-out, India shouldn’t feel the need to justify it by lying about warnings." 


Earlier, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the law-making private body of cricket, which has now removed rules relating to runouts at the non-striker’s end from the “unfair play” category earlier this month, gave a green signal to the dismissal and stated that it all happened well within the laws of the game.
