    He did not.

    FC career started in 1996/97.

    Test career started in 2000/01.

    Lara's record hunt

    Forget the world record...

    * Lara is at 8,404 Test runs in his career, second the Windies alltime list behind Sir Viv Richards (8540). He needs only 137 mor runs to become the highest scoring West Indian Test player of all time.

    * Lara has 8,233 ODI runs, second to Haynes (8,648) and needs only 426 runs to become the highest scoring West Indian ODI player of all time.

    * He's played 96 Tests and with 4 more, he will be only the 7th to have played 100+.

    * He's played 219 ODI's, 19 behind leader Desmond Haynes.

    * Behind Sobers (26) and Richards (24), Lara is 3rd on the Test centuries list, with 21. He is 5 away from surpassing Richards' 45 fifties.

    * Lara and Haynes (17) are tied for the most West Indian ODI hundreds.

    * 7 more catches in ODI's would take Lara to his century - becoming only the third to do so, behind Hooper (120) and Viv Richards (100).

    Notable: 97 ODI hundreds have been scored in WI cricket history. Who will notch the 100th century?

    I summarized these points from another superb article by Imran Khan, the West Indian columnist who wrote the Hayden/Lara predestined article.

    Records Await Lara
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I am glad that Matsikenyeri is going to be given a chance. He, along with Taibu, Masakadza and Ervine can form the backbone of a decent side. He has real talent and class.
    The selection of Mahwire is obviously Quota-born and makes no sense considering Mbangwa's test average. Pommie is a far better bowler than Mahwire and should be playing every game.
    Gavin Ewing being dropped = madness. The man has a 1st class average of over fifty! He is being left out because of his bowling yet he is a BATSMAN who can bowl a few overs, but he is no allrounder.

    Looking at Ewing's stats, he seems to have potential to be an allrounder.

    WI XI named

    Dillon out. I heard something about a muscle strain.

    Samuels hard done IMO. He scores a hundred and Hinds scores single digits in both knocks v Zimbabwe A, then he's dropped.

    Edwards in.

    Full squad

    Ewing considers himself as more of a bowler, although when he's batted he's been at number 8 or 9.

    Matsikenyeri real class? When I last saw him play in England earlier this year he showed exactly why he has a ODI average of 12.14 from 9 ODIs...it's because he is extreamly raw and does not appear to have a technique...
    "Age is just a stupid number"

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    I think you may find that was Robert Samuals.

    I cant imagine he started his FC carear at only 15 years of age.

    One would imagine the Zimbabwe team should be fairly well prepared considering they've recently played 2 tests against Australia.

    It'll be interesting to see how Taylor & Edwards bowl...or how quickly they bowl anyway.

    You may be right marc on his profile it does say 1996/1997.

    sound's weird though because he was only like 18 when he made his test debut 19 at the oldest and I remember hearing one of the commentators saying he had yet to play a FC match.

    And he has still only palyed 39 FC matches 19 of witch are tests thats not very many in over 7 years.

    NO WI domestic cricket. Cricinfo, caribbeancricket.com, and I did post on the Cable & Wireless forums at cwcricket.com - I was a well respected member on there.

    Surprisingly Edwards opened the bowling. He's a bit too full so far but has Sibanda caught behind an over back. Sibanda has just hit him for 2 fours and looks a decent talent.

    typical, the batsman strokes 2 consecutive fours & then thinking he's got the measure of the bowler relaxes only to get himself out. I think that showed a lack of experience by Sibanda.

    It has begun.....

    I think Zimbabwe will be all out by tea for a score of around 150.

    Interesting to see how far Carlisle and Gripper have come on since Australia. See whether they can carry on their form.
