CARIBBEAN - cricket test match 2004

Brian's Easter victory!

Brian Lara West Indies captain reaching for a world record

As Christians around the world celebrated the ascendancy of the Prince of Peace into heaven, there were also celebrations here as the Prince of Port-of-Spain rose to cricketing heights. More info

On Easter Sunday the sheer statistical weight of his second triple hundred speaks for itself, as did his first, the unforgettable 375 at the same Antigua Recreation Ground ten years ago that was then Test cricket’s record score.

Easter Monday he went to the summit of cricket becoming the first man to make a quadruple-century in a Test innings. Lara’s unconquered 400 proclaimed beyond doubt his status as the modern game’s No.1 player.

Lara congratuated by the English captain on reaching his third centuryLara's latest act of revival, like the first, cannot mask the serious problems that confront West Indies cricket or the reasons why his team should be relying on him to save them from the indignity of a clean sweep.

But at least it has rekindled the confidence and assuaged the anguish of a depressed Caribbean people. More info

All cricketdom arose yesterday to proclaim Brian Charles Lara as the all-conquering king of cricket.

Homage was paid to the Trinidadian left-hander for his super-human batting performance at the Antigua Recreation Ground, where he first reclaimed the record for the highest score in a Test innings and then became the first man in Test history to make a quadruple-century.

His 400 not out off 582 balls came in just under 13 hours and included 43 fours and four sixes. In doing so, he eclipsed the previous batting record of 380 established just six months ago by Australia’s Matthew Hayden.

It took the side to 752 for five declared – the second highest score in West Indies history and the highest by any country against England.
