Lara ends Border's reign

West Indian batting superstar Brian Lara became the greatest run scorer in Test cricket during his epic double-century in the third Test against Australia at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday.

The 36-year-old Trinidad great, 12 runs off the record on his overnight score of 202, went past Allan Border's world record aggregate of 11,174 runs early on the second day's play.

Lara's 405-minute masterpiece was finally ended when he was bowled by Glenn McGrath for 226, leaving him with a Test aggregate of 11,187 runs at an average of 54.04 in his 121st Test match.

Lara sweeps past Border

Brian Lara has spent his cricketing life exciting fans with spectacular deeds and he marked his step into Test run-scoring's unknown with an extraordinary single. A swept boundary moved Allan Border past Sunil Gavaskar's record in 1993 and Lara used a similar method when he bravely shuffled across his stumps to paddle Glenn McGrath to fine-leg for a single, his 214th run of the innings and his 11,175th over 15 years.

The beautiful ground rose again and Australia's players formed a casual line to offer their congratulations as Lara's team-mates stood with hands high in the dressing room. Lara was pleased but calm - and probably tired after making 202 on day one - and hugged Daren Powell before accepting the opposition's compliments.
