Cricket world divided by Indian spinner's controversial dismissal

India has secured a 3-0 series whitewash in their bilateral ODI series against England, with the low-scoring third match at Lord’s ending in controversial circumstances on Saturday evening AEST.

The hosts, who at one stage were reeling at 6/53, needed 17 runs for victory when Indian spinner Deepti Sharma ran out England’s Charlie Dean in the 44th over at the non-striker’s end, colloquially known as a “Mankad”.

It is often informally referred to as a Mankad, after Indian batter Vinoo Mankad, who was the first player to enact the type of run out in a Test match.

The wicket was followed by plenty of debate, and took the attention away from Jhulan Goswami's farewell to inte ational cricket.
