Brian Lara Biography, Relationship & Career
Brian Lara, the magician took his first coaching of the game of cricket in the Harvard Coaching Clinic. He was only 6 years old when he joined and although he was paying for Trinidad’s junior soccer in addition to table tennis team eventually he picked cricket. He scored 745 runs at an average of 126.16 while he was only 14 years old and that time made his way to the Trinidad & Tobago Under-16 team. Within a year, he had been given an entry in the West Indies Under-19 team. His heroics in national cricket earned him a captaincy cap in the year 1990, while he was only 20 years old and thus became the youngest captain of Trinidad ever. The same year, he was also included in the evaluation team after Sir Viv Richards was ruled out. He made his test debut against Pakistan and scored a great 44 in the first innings.
Within a few years, Lara became West Indies’ largest match-winner. While others struggle at the 1992 World Cup, he was the only shining for those who scored 333 runs in the championship, and that also with a lively pace. A year or two later, he scored a massive 375 against the visiting England in Antigua. That was the greatest individual score then. He bettered this against the exact same opponent at the exact same place in 2004 and this time he scored 400 not out. This was possibly an immortal achievement.
Although his captaincy was criticized heavily, he marshaled his troops into the coveted ICC winner’s trophy crown in the year 2004. Lara finally decided to call it a day and declared he will hang his boots following the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup. His side was knocked from the World Cup in the super 8 phases.
Post-retirement, he played for a couple of years at the rebel Indian Cricket League and then recently played at the Masters’ Champions League.
