Brian Lara promised West Indies cricket a legacy and, yesterday, in front of a cacophonous crowd at the Recreation Ground, each and every one of whom one day will tell their grandchildren they were there, he delivered, as if to order, the highest individual score in Test match history.
By the time, 25 minutes after lunch, he turned wearily on his heels and made his way back to the dressing room, he had not only gone beyond his own previous record of 375, made here a decade ago, and Matthew Hayden's subsequent 380, set in Perth against Zimbabwe barely six months ago, but had gone on to an unbeaten 400. Such had been his dominance that, given the inclination, his first-class record 501 might have been in jeopardy. In the end mercy prevailed. His innings had taken a shade under 13 hours and contained 43 fours and four sixes.,10070,1190766,00.html
