”The game is over. Charlie was dismissed legitimately, India were deserved winners 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”, Heather wrote on Twitter.

Deepti Sharma on reaching Kolkata airport, said it was part of the plan and whatever they’ve done was in accordance with the rules of the game and have also given warnings about leaving the crease.

‘It was a plan because we had warned her (for leaving the crease early) repeatedly. Whatever we did things was as per the rules and guidelines. We had told the umpires as well. But still, she (Charlie Dean) was there (outside the crease). We couldn’t do much’, Deepti told.
