    Yep, looks like Twatto is at what would've been 1st slip. Don't think he'd be fielding there.

    Not to mention he was walking in to face Krejza.

    They stood on the leg side of him so he probably didn't notice them.

    Gooch and Gatting both did so during their last Test in 1995, IIRC. Gatt might not qualify as a 'great' but both got a GOH (and both dismissed cheaply).

    Same With Steve Waugh along with the 2 batsman, i think -



    Many of the Indian team just shook his hand when he got out IIRC. Strange that they didn't give him a guard of honor when he was batting last.

    Don't think he got one while coming onto bat. Got one coming out to field from his own teammates and batsman iirc.

    Lara and Murali probably leading the race here.

    Lara got 2 when he broke the highest score world record (from his own teammates the end time), and then one from England when he retired. Probably got one from Pakistan when he retired from tests too ?

    Don't reckon Hussey deserved it tbh. The Ponting one was awesome though
