Rashid to Herath, Safe. Rangi avoids a duck in his last ever outing. For now at least. Loopy leg break on middle and leg, it spins in as Herath gets low to sweep. Foakes moves to his right, takes the catch and appeals. The finger goes up too. The Lankan veteran reviews it and replays show there's no bat or glove involved. Good call from him.

The DRS has been taken. Herath has been given out caught behind and he's immediately reviewed it.

Rangana Herath, for the last time in his international career, walks out to the middle. He is greeted with a standing ovation from the crowd and an applause from the English team too.
