Lara double-ton defies Australia

by Thomas Rose

A majestic double-century to West Indian batting maestro Brian Lara has guided the tourists into their best position yet of the series against Australia at Adelaide.

Lara's innings contained all the elements of one of the great knocks as he compiled a brilliant 202 not out with wavering support from his teammates.

The West Indies started the day very shakily with a number of streaky shots flying through the slips cordon and others going to ground as they failed to cope with the opening pair of Glenn McGrath and Brett Lee. It was Lee who reaped the early rewards, removing Wavell Hinds for 10 and Devon Smith for 7 as the Windies were reduced to 19/2.

The left-hander ended the day 202 not out off 266 balls to put him within touching distance of the former Australia captain's aggregate of 11,174. Not for the first time Lara, already the world record holder of the highest Test score of 400, came to his side's aid with them struggling at 53 for three.

West Indian batsman Brian Lara silenced his critics with an unbeaten double-century in the third and final Test against Australia yesterday.

The 36-year-old left-hander, who had been under fire after a string of moderate scores in the two previous Tests with critics claiming his best days were behind him, responded in magnificent fashion.

Lara made 202 not out to help his struggling team end the first day at Adelaide Oval on 352 for seven. He needs just 12 more runs to pass Allan Border's world record of 11,174 for the most Test runs.
