Lara on song

Can't take my eyes off this scoreboard -- Lara's going nuts after lunch. 63 off 58 would be brilliant stuff, especially on the back of three quick wickets, in an ODI. In Tests, what can you say?
Shiv Chanderpaul has lucked into the best seat in the house -- now all he has to do is enjoy the view.... of, as I write this, the master bat dancing down to Kaneria to cover drive the boundary.
The real problem for Pak is this -- once Lara gets set and gets runs under his belt, you need a stick of TNT to dislodge him. The only option seems to be to shut him down -- and attack at the other end. Which admittedly is easier said than done.
Be interesting to see how Younis Khan responds to this challenge, actually. Which reminds me, Viks, thanks for that tip about Dishnet -- will go check it out.

  • Just checked the score...Lara completed his 29th! At this rate (and given that Tendulkar is not scheduled to play Test cricket for some time now), Lara may be the first one to surpass SMG!
