India whitewash England in Jhulan's farewell match, but Mankad run-out creates controversy

Jhulan did not have a good time with bat in her last match. She went down to bat and was the victim of a golden duck. However, batting wasn’t the thing which had made Jhulan a legend. After that, she took two wickets in bowling conceding just 30 runs in 10 overs with 3 maidens which made her last match memorable.

India women’s team have picked up the win against England women’s team in legendary Jhulan Goswami's farewell match in a controversial way on Saturday (September 24) at Lord’s. In the last match of the series against England, India did a Mankad, when England needed just 17 more runs.
When India's captain Harmanpreet Kaur came to toss in the last match after the series win was confirmed, there was one more player besides the opposing captain, host, and match referee, Jhulan Goswami. On this day, not two, but actually 3 people did the toss.
However, Jhulan did not have a good time with bat in her last match. She went down to bat and was the victim of a golden duck. However, batting wasn’t the thing which had made Jhulan a legend. After that, she took two wickets in bowling conceding just 30 runs in 10 overs with 3 maidens which made her last match memorable.
But due to Mankad, India faced criticism. Deepti Sharma was bowling the fourth ball of the 44th over. Freya Davies was at the striking end with 10 runs off 29 balls. Charlie Dean, who scored 47 off 80 balls at the non-striking end, was dreaming of an incredible victory for the English.
However, the hosts, who lost the 9th wicket for 118 runs, lost Charlie at 153 runs through Mankad. Deepti, captain Harmanpreet, and Team India have been heavily criticized since then. The cricket world is bound to remember Jhulan's farewell match for a long time.
Jhulan has played a total of 20 years in international cricket, playing 12 Tests, 204 ODIs and 68 T20Is for India. Jhulan can be seen in next year's women's IPL, even if she bids farewell to international cricket. India women whitewashed England by 3-0 in her farewell series.
