West Indies legend Brian Charles Lara turns 50 on Thursday (May 2). Lara is considered one of the all time greats of the cricketing world.
He is the only player to score 400 in Tests and is also the leading run-scorer for West Indies in Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODI). He finished his Test career with 11,912 runs with 34 tons and 48 half-centuries in 130 matches to his credit. His ODI record is not too bad either. In 299 matches he amassed 10, 348 at an average of 40.90. He also scored 19 centuries and 62 fifties.
His last international match was in the ICC Wold Cup 2007, a tournament where he led West Indies at home.
