The old master does it again

On the eve of the Ashes and with all attention turning to Brisbane it was somewhat inevitable that the legendary Brian Lara would produce something a tinsy-wincy bit special and he obliged with 196* including a 100 before lunch - a truly incredible achievement. By way of context, it is interesting to note that this was Brian Lara's 34th test century in his 130th test match whereas the top 7 England are going to put out tomorrow can only boast 31 centuries in a total of 184 tests.
After losing the uber-cool Chris Gayle in the fifth over of the day, Lara came in and proceeded to spank the Pakistani attack around the park, saving a particularly savage onslaught for the unfortunate Danish Kaneria who Lara disaptached for 60 runs off only 29 balls including 5 sixes.
