The third ODI between India and England at Lord's ended with a clean sweep for India, but the final wicket garnered mixed reactions. Deepti Sharma noticed Charlie Dean backing up too far at the non-striker's end in the 44th over with England needing 17 off 38 balls, and ran her out to claim the final wicket. While England players expressed disappointment at the dismissal, India captain Harmanpreet Kaur threw her support behind Deepti.

The reactions to the dismissal on social media have been varied. While some applauded Deepti for abiding by the rules of the game, others considered this mode of dismissal to be against the spirit of cricket.
