WATCH: Rangana Herath receives ‘Guard of Honour’ from England players in farewell Test

Sri Lankan veteran Rangana Herath received a ‘Guard of Honour’ from the visiting England team in his farewell Test at Galle when he walked out to bat.

Herath retired from international cricket as one of the most successful Lankan bowlers in Tests after Muttiah Muralitharan who scalped 800 wickets.

During the Galle Test, Herath became the second oldest cricketer to pick up a wicket apart from becoming the third bowler in the history of the game to take 100 Test wickets at a venue. He joined Muralitharan and James Anderson to that list.
