LONDON: Legendary fast bowler Jhulan Goswami on Saturday received a guard of honour from the players while walking out to bat for the final time in international cricket during India's third ODI against England at Lord's on Saturday.

Stepping on the field for her last international game, Jhulan had the honour of doing the toss for India against England and also gave a speech in the team huddle. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur, who had debuted under Jhulan's captaincy in 2009, broke down in tears when Jhulan addressed the side.

She was even provided with a memento before the start of the match at Lord's. England head coach Lisa Keightley, whose term ends after Saturday's match, presented Goswami with a shirt signed by the England players along with interim ECB CEO Clare Connor.

Jhulan walked in to bat at number nine for India after an ordinary batting display from the visitors in the 39th over, and received a heartfelt guard of honor on the field as she made her way out one final time in international cricket. Playing in her 204th ODI, Jhulan was unfortunately dismissed for a golden duck in her final international innings as young left-arm pacer Freya Kemp castled her. IANS
