Brian Lara Holds The Record for Most Runs in Test Cricket
by Thomson Fontaine

Adelaide, Australia � Brian Lara made cricketing history, when he became the player with the most test runs, and one of only two players to score more than 11 000 runs, when he blasted 226 in the first innings of the third test match against Australia.

Lara now has an aggregate of 11, 187 test runs surpassing Allan Border of Australia at 11, 174. It took Lara 37 fewer tests to accomplish this milestone. In achieving this feat, Lara has a total of eight double centuries, which is second only to Australian Sir Don Bradman.

The genius West Indian batsman also holds the record for the most test runs in a single innings (400 not out), and the highest score in first class cricket, 501 not out.

The former West Indies skipper�s brilliant knock lifted the West Indies to 405 all out, and offered some hope that his team would be able to prevent a humiliating white wash at the hands of the Australians. In response, Australia at the end of day two are 229 for 3.

West Indies lost the first two tests as their cricketing woes continue, but all of that seemed to have been forgotten for the moment as Lara once again proved that he is arguably the most talented and exceptional cricketer to have ever played the game, with the exception perhaps of Sir Don Bradman.
