Beforehand, India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in certainly one of his tweets had praised Deepti Sharma for her ‘presence of thoughts’ however the former Sri Lankan nice refused to purchase that and criticised Deepti for not following the spirit of the sport.

“What presence of thoughts? No cricketer would play worldwide matches if she or he has no presence of thoughts. I’d have appreciated Deepti (Sharma) if she had given the warning to the non-striker first. It might have been in the precise spirit of the sport then,” Muralidaran advised to Deccan Chronicle.

“Sure, lawfully, she (Deepti Sharma) was proper in working out the non-striker however that is within the regulation and never within the spirit of the sport. The white ball recreation is a strain recreation and in a decent scenario the non-striker could have left the crease early and if this act by the non-striker is repeated, the runout is justified. Not in any other case in my view,” the off-spinner added.
