London (UK), September 24: Jhulan Goswami received a guard of honour from the players as she stepped out to bat for the final time in international cricket during the third One-Day International (ODI) against England at Lord's on Saturday.

Jhulan walked out to bat at number 9 in her final ODI at Lord's after India's batting performance was ordinary. She did, however, receive a heartwarming gesture on the field from England players as she made her final way out one final time in international cricket.

Put to bat first, India lost its top order's wickets in quick succession, reducing to 29/4, before Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma restored the innings.

However, when the partnership was broken, India continued to lose wickets at quick breaks, and it wasn't long until Jhulan came out to bat.

Unfortunately, the India stalwart, who is playing her 204th ODI, exited for a golden duck in her final innings, but she walked off to a guard of honour from the players.

Incidentally, Jhulan was last time dismissed for a golden duck in the 2017 ICC Women's Cricket ODI World Cup final against England at the same venue.

After six years, however, in her final series, Goswami was part of the Indian squad that defeated England in an ODI series in England for the first time in 23 years.
