Rain ruins Lara's Aussie farewell

Rain ended what is likely to be Brian Lara's last match in Australia on Friday, handing victory to the Prime Minister's XI. Lara was on 13 when rain swept across Canberra's Manuka Oval with the visitors on 174-3 in the 32nd over, chasing 317 for victory Lara's appearance in last week Adelaide was the 18th Test he had played in the country, during which he scored 1,428 runs at an average of 43.27. His overall record against the world champions - 2,856 at 51 - is bettered by his achievements against England, the other team he has faced in a significant proportion of his 121 Tests.

Lara secures new Test runs record

West Indies batsman Brian Lara has become the leading Test run scorer of all time, passing the 11,174 total of former Australian captain Allan Border.
The 36-year-old scored his 11,175th run on the second morning of the third Test against Australia in Adelaide. He was eventually bowled by Glenn McGrath for 226 after improving the record to 11,187. Lara also holds records for the highest Test and first-class scores of 400 not out and 501. His epic quadruple century against England in Antigua in April 2004 saw him become the first man to reclaim the world record, which he set at 375 in 1994 and then lost to Australian Matthew Hayden. He now has eight double centuries in Tests, a total exceeded only by Sir Don Bradman (12), and was given a standing ovation by the Adelaide Ovel crowd when he reached 217 not out to eclipse Border's 12-year-old record.
