Whats everyones thoughts of Brian Lara, and him being the new holder of test run scoring. IMO it couldnt have gone to a more deserved individual. He has the highest backlift, thus the shortest time to decide and perform a correct stroke He has battled thru a declining Windie era, yet still managers to post 11,000 runs AND 8 double centuries. He had less Tests than Waugh, and still has more runs/centuries And has scored more runs from a losing side than any other player but the big thing is this 8 double centuries ONLY BRADMAN has more, and Wally Hammond has 7......thus were's Waugh, Border, Gaviskar in these double tonne stats?? Lara deserves this accolade, in which I hope lifts the Windie community to give this game another crack, so we can fear the YA MAAAN blokes again Good on ya Brian..........I hope this record stays in tact for as long as it did for AB.
