Pakistan gave all-rounder Shoaib Malik a guard of honour after their World Cup win over Bangladesh at Lord’s on Friday.
Pakistan were eliminated from the tournament as they didn’t beat Bangladesh by a large enough margin, but honoured Malik as he retired from ODIs.
Malik had announced prior to the World Cup that he would bring his ODI career to an end after the tournament.
✅ Hugs galore
