KINGSTON, Jamaica – Legendary West Indies cricketer Brian Lara is scheduled to play in Jamaica at the Treasure Beach Sports Park in St Elizabeth next year.
Lara made the announcement via video, which has been making rounds on social media.
“I just wanted to make a quick video to let everyone in Jamaica know that I will be seeing you soon. I’ll be playing in the legends cricket match on Sunday, January 15 at the Treasure Beach Sports Park in St Elizabeth. Looking forward to seeing you and your family. See you there,” Lara said.
The Windies great holds several records in the batting department with the highest individual score in first-class cricket with 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham in 1994.
He did so in 474 minutes off 427 balls while hitting 308 in boundaries (10 sixes and 62 fours).
In addition, he holds the West Indies record of 400 not out against England in Test cricket in 2004. (Jamaica Observer)
