The dust is yet to settle on the Deepti Sharma and Charlotte Dean controversy surrounding the run-out incident on Sunday before yet another controversy has taken center stage. Team India star batter Taniya Bhatia had her precious items stolen from her hotel room in London on Monday after she confirmed the news on Twitter.
"Shocked and disappointed at Marriot Hotel London Maida Vale management; someone walked into my personal room and stole my bag with cash, cards, watches, and jewellery during my recent stay as a part of the Indian Women's Cricket team. @MarriottBonvoy @Marriott. So unsafe," read Taniya's first tweet.
Her second tweet added," Hoping for a quick investigation and resolution of this matter. Such lack of security at @ECB_cricket's preferred hotel partner is astounding. Hope they will take cognisance as well. @Marriott @BCCIWomen @BCCI," demanding a quick investigation.
The female star has now demanded an investigation on the incident after she had her costly belonging stolen. She has raised question marks on the security and tagged the English Cricket Board (ECB) to carry out an immediate investigation.
As per the tweet, Taniya has been stolen for cash, cards, watches, and jewellery. The incident has highlighted the insecure environment provided by the English management.
The incident comes just two days after India and England were involved in a controversial ODI affair that saw the last of Jhulan Goswami as she announced her retirement. The match saw Deepti Shamra run out Charlotte Dean in the 43rd over at the non-striker's end.
The controversy saw many cricketers and former cricketer have their say, while the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) had to officially release a statement on the incident. Despite the controversy, Team India were still the best team in the house as they won the series 3-0. This was team India's first series win on English soil since 1999.
