Brian Lara equal Gavaskar's record
Nov 21, 2006West Indian Batting Genius Brian Lara rewrote the record books today with a spectacular innings of 100 runs from 77 balls before the lunch break on the third day of the second Test in Multan.
In an awesome display of batting, blended with some exquisitely timed shots, Lara became the fifth batsman in Test history to score a hundred before lunch. Lara's 34th century included 12 fours and five sixes and is also the ninth fastest hundred in Test history. Sir Vivian Richards holds the record of fastest century in Test cricket, which came in just 56 balls against England at St Antigua in 1985. Lara also joined former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar in second spot in the illustrated list of most Test centuries scored and is just one behind Sachin Tendulkar , who heads the list with 35 hundreds. It is also the second time that a century before lunch has been recorded in Pakistan, the first instance being in 1976-77 when Majid Khan scored 108 against New Zealand at Karachi.
Sachin hit his 35th ton
Dec 9, 2005India's Sachin Tendulkar celebrated becoming cricket's most prolific Test century scorer when he hit his 35th ton against Sri Lanka.
Tendulkar brought up the world record with a single off Chaminda Vaas in fading light as play ended on the first day of the second Test in Delhi. He surpasses the record held by compatriot Sunil Gavaskar. India ended the day on 245-3 with VVS Laxman hitting 69 and Sourav Ganguly unbeaten on 39. Tendulkar, who had not been in great batting form since returning from a six-month injury absence, took 177 balls for his century, hitting 13 fours and a six along the way. And he reached the milestone in 125 Tests, the same amount Gavaskar took to score 34 centuries.
