The last England pair Charlie Dean and Freya Davis were on the field and the two shared a 49-ball 35-run partnership for the last wicket. At the same time, Harmanpreet Kaur handed the ball to Deepti Sharma and she started bowling the 44th over.
Charlie went to the non-striker’s end with a run on the first ball, while Davis could not take a run on the second ball. After this, on the third ball, Deepti, who had gone out of the crease during the bowling, ran out Charlie at the non-striker’s end, which was also upheld by the third umpire and India managed to register victory.
