Brian Lara Seizes Immortality-“501 Not Out”

In the world of cricket, Brian Lara marks 6th of June as a significant date by achieving immortality by making the highest score in first-class establishing a record in history with 501 runs not out.

Trinidadian former international cricketer, Brian known for his spectacular batting skills created a record of 375 runs in the test match. Before Lara, the record for highest runs was in the name of Hanif Mohammad with 499 runs.

However, Lara surpassed this record while playing for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston. Out of the 427 deliveries faced by him, he hammered 62 fours and 10 sixes. His test record of 375 was broken off by Matthew Hayden in 2003 however, in April 2004 he took back his record with 400 runs against England.

Lara started practicing cricket when he was 6 years old after his father, Bunty and one of his elder sisters enrolled him in the local Harvard Coaching Clinic for weekly sessions.
