On Tuesday, FIFA imposed a ban on the AIFF after carrying out unanimous voting in support of the Ban. The Ban was imposed due to undue influence from third parties on the working of AIFF which is a flagrant violation of the FIFA Statutes.

FIFA in its press release about the ban had also reassured that they are in constant constructive contact with the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports in India and is optimistic to come up with a plan.

However, due to the imposition of the ban, India has lost hosting rights for the Under 17 Women’s world cup which was scheduled to be held in India from 11th to 30th October.

Deepti Sharma’s run out of Charlie Dean in the third India women-England women ODI at Lord’s on September 24 is still being discussed by the fans and pundits, who are still debating whether this dismissal is in ‘spirit of cricket’.

Ashwin, who had also run-out Jos Buttler during the 2019 Indian Premier League in the same fashion, spoke in detail on the subject on his YouTube channel on Sunday.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ashwin tore through Deepti Sharma’s critics and called them out for controlling the narratives and playing the victim card. He sees this particular mode of dismissal as bowlers’ revolution, he said.

Ashwin said initially, most of the world saw Sharma’s actions as a crime but the opinion is changing now, there’s still a section of people who are resisting. In the beginning, the whole world saw it that way. But now, most of them have started realising that the bowlers didn’t commit any crime there, he said.

The team India spinner also said many of them have started asking why you are asking questions to the innocent instead of asking the person who should be guilty. Only a certain section of the people seems to have a problem with this, he said.

Deepti Sharma’s controversial run-out reignited the debate on the undefined spirit of cricket and the morality of running out a non-striker before bowling the ball, despite the latter being a clearly-defined law in the International Cricket Council’s books.
