Deepti Sharma’s Career


Early Cricket Career

At age 9, Deepti Sharma's only interest was in figuring out the causes of her brother's well-deserved renown in the local cricket community. Former Uttar Pradesh pacer Sumit had his bowling movement based after former Indian speedster Lakshimpathy Balaji, so it's no surprise that he's been able to generate some buzz.


As soon as Deepti Sharma began going to her brother's practices, people frequently mistook her for a boy due to her eccentric slim-trim hairstyle. But Deepti had no idea that one of these occurrences would lead her on a path to success she had never imagined. Deepti Sharma was instructed to throw the ball back into play at the Ekalavya Sports Stadium in Agra during one of the net sessions involving her brother and his teammates. On a direct toss from a distance of 50 meters, the ball struck the stumps. Hemlata Kala, the then-selector for India's national women's team, saw this, and it marked a pivotal moment in Deepti's life.

Deepti Sharma had sufficient experience by the time she was 15 but the selectors never chose her for the state teams. But Kala made sure she had plenty of practice by bringing her to the railway camps in Delhi and Allahabad. A few other selectors began to notice her versatility, and Rita Dey, a former Indian batter and selector, agreed to train her. After beginning as a medium pacer, Deepti Sharma was forced to switch to slow off-spin bowling. She found the change challenging because it did not feel natural to her. She didn't learn how to spin bowl until after receiving instruction and advice from her local coaches and selectors because of her height.

In both state and A side games, Deepti Sharma continued to put on a magnificent display. However, it was her performance against South Africa in her first international game in Bengaluru that solidified her position in the team.


Deepti Sharma’s International Career

In Bengaluru, Deepti Sharma played her first ODI match against South Africa in 2014. The ICC Women's Championship included the game. Together with Poonam Raut, Sharma set a new world record for opening partnerships, scoring 320 runs, with the latter providing 188 runs. Consequently, the men's record in ODIs of 286 and the women's record of 229 were both broken. In a quadrangular series against Ireland women at Potchefstroom that also featured South Africa women and Zimbabwe women sides, the Indian team was aided by this duo in scoring 358 for three in 50 overs.

In the 2017 Women's Cricket World Cup final, Deepti Sharma was a member of the Indian squad that fell to England by a score of nine runs. She featured in 9 matches, recording 12 wickets and 216 runs at an average of 30.86, with her best bowling performance against Australia being 3 for 59 from 7.1 overs. The finest bowling performance of Sharma's career was a 6-20 in the final ODI at Ranchi against Sri Lanka.

Jhulan Goswami and Deepti Sharma were signed to play for Bengal in the Senior women's domestic season 2017–18. She had the highest season run total with 312 runs at an average of 104 in 6 games and a remarkable strike rate of 65.13. She achieved five half-centuries and a top score of 77. Additionally, Deepti took 9 wickets overall, with her finest performance coming against Vidarbha in Kolkata (3 for 26).

In the six matches that Deepti has played, she has already amassed two hundreds and one half-century, with her highest score coming against Baroda in Bengaluru at 106 not out. She has also claimed 13 wickets, with her highest total coming against Kerala in Bengaluru (4 for 12).

The Indian squad was defeated by England by 8 wickets in the semifinal match. In the competition, she only claimed 5 wickets, with her best being 2 for 15 in 3 overs against Ireland.

Deepti Sharma’s Controversies


Mankading Controversy

Even though India had England on the mat in the third ODI at Lord's, Charlie Dean was threatening to steal the match with her valiant innings of 40. Deepti Sharma displayed superb game knowledge by running Dean out in her bowling stride with 17 runs needed and five overs remaining.

Running a batter out for backing up is perfectly legal under cricket rules, albeit uncommon. Before Deepti Sharma used the specific method of dismissal, Dean is said to have started the game early 72 times. However, the entire episode has turned into a contentious situation, with the English cricket community accusing India of ignoring the spirit of the game.

The controversy has been further heightened by Deepti Sharma's assertion that Dean was warned prior to her ejection from the game and England captain Heather Knight's denials, accusing the Indian player of lying.

The English cricketer community, who have criticized the run-out despite it being legal, has generally been the aggrieved side in Deepti Sharma's event. Before charging Deepti with purposefully prolonging her delivery to run Dean out, England's players questioned her sportsmanship.
