Cricket Legend Brian Lara turns 52

In Cricket, Sport

2 May 1969. West Indian cricket legend Brian Lara was born in Santa Cruz, Trinidad and Tobago. He recorded the highest innings score in first-class cricket, with 501 not out for Warwickshire in 1994 and the highest Test innings total of 400 not out against England in 2004.

 

He also held the Test record from April 1994 to October 2003 when he broke Sir Gary Sobers’ longstanding record of 365* made in March 1958 by scoring 375 v England, also at the Antigua Recreation Ground.

Lara is the only player to retrieve the overall Test record for highest individual score and the only player, apart from Sir Donald Bradman, to hold both the Test and first-class record for highest score though in Bradman’s case for a much shorter period (from 1930-33).
