"No warning, Play by the Law"- Ex-Aus legendary pacer tears apart Vaughan and Heather Knight for questioning on Deepti's warning

"No warning, Play by the Law."- Ex-Aus legendary pacer tears apart Vaughan and Heather Knight for questioning on Deepti's warning

The "Mankad Saga" has certainly taken the world by storm because not only in India and England, but everyone in the world is talking about this and sharing their views. Some are still terming it as against the "spirit of the game," while some are saying it is fair because it is within the law.

Notably, it happened in the third and final ODI match between India and England's women's team at Lord's on Saturday. India's all-rounder, Deepti Sharma ran English batter Charlie Dean out, who was backing too far away at the non-striker's end.

That ran out and helped India win the match and the series 3-0, and India registered a historic series win on English soil after 2002. But after that, it created havoc on the social media with players from both countries, both present and former, sharing their opinions.

However, on Monday, when the India's women's team landed back in India from England, Deepti Sharma interacted with the media and said that they gave plenty of warning to batter Dean and also told the on-field umpires for the same, and after that, they ran her out.

To that, the English women's team skipper, Heather Knight, who missed the series due to injury, said that India should not lie about warnings and need not justify their actions. In addition to that, former English men's skipper Micheal Vaughan also added that we should ask the on-field umpire whether there was any warning or not.

But the former Australian pacer had a different opinion on Vaughan's comment. Jason Gillespie also took to his social media account and retweeted Vaughan's tweet and said that there is no need to ask the umpire because the law doesn't ask him to give warning to the batter before running him/her out.

Gillespie tweeted, "Sorry- there is nothing in the law that says a warning should ever be given for unfair play. Play by the laws and the game will take care of itself."

Eventually, the match ended in favour of India, and they won the game by 16 runs. After the match, the Indian skipper, Harmanpreet Kaur, also backed her team and said that her team hadn't done anything wrong and whatever happened was within the rule book.
