Remind me what Lara did in that series prior to that match? You collapsed for under 300 in the first innings. No denying Lara was a great batsmen and the pitch was flat, but an international team allowing a player to score 400* is very poor. If it was easy a lot of players would have done it against lower opposition but it still doesn't always happen.
It requires everything to go right. It did for Lara against supposedly a good quality attack.
