Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga is given a standing ovation by his teammates during their first ODI against Bangladesh in Colombo Friday AFP

As the 35-year old walked in front of the packed stands, the R Premadasa crowd erupted in joy, cheering his name, while Malinga got accompanied by a supporter carrying the Sri Lanka flag

Sri Lanka lost their eighth wicket for 309 that saw pace legend Lasith Malinga with the willow for the one last time in ODIs. 

As the 35-year old walked in front of the packed stands, the R Premadasa crowd erupted in joy, cheering his name, while Malinga got accompanied by a supporter carrying the Sri Lanka flag.

The individual had an accreditation hanging as he walked Malinga to the middle and no security personnel were concerned as the man took his time to get out of the field. 

The Sri Lanka batters in the middle were in laughter while a few of the Bangladesh fielders had hinted him to run off since he had kept the game at a standstill.
