    guard of honour send-off

    In an emotion-filled morning, after a one-minute silence following the death of coach Bob Woolmer on Sunday and then a guard of honour send-off for Inzamam, Nazir dominated. His 121-ball innings included 14 boundaries and a joint World Cup record eight sixes.

    Please explain this higlighted group of words. (I know dominate means but I don't understand to whom he dominated)

    Nazir dominated the field/game by playing very well.

    "guard of honour send-off for Inzamam" - Inzamam has retired as captain of the team. When he left the field for the last time, his team stood in rows on either side.

    And as Pakistan batted first, when he left the field as a batsman for the last time, Kenya did too (though not so much 'on either side' - they clustered round him to congratulate him as he left the field).
