“A pleasure to welcome @Deepti_Sharma06 to ring the five-minute bell at Lord’s this morning #Love Lord’s #ENGvIND,” tweeted Lord’s Cricket Ground through their official handle along with Deepti’s picture.
The custom of ringing bell to start a day’s proceedings was started by the MCC in 2007. The 23-year-old Deepti, a left-handed batter and a right-arm off-break bowler, has played 116 internationals across three formats.
The Agra-born cricketer is also currently playing in the inaugural edition of the ‘The Hundred’.
