Lara hundred fails to stonewall Pakistan
A majestic 29th Test hundred from Brian Lara could
not stop Pakistan from bowling out West Indies on the opening day of the
opening Test on Thursday. The 37-year-old Lara hit the top score of 130
at better than a run a ball, but West Indies were dismissed for 345 in
their first innings, and Pakistan, in response, reached 22 without loss
from four overs before stumps were drawn.
