    Definitely one of the top five all-time best batsmen...

    Uhh someone close this thread..

    I tried to be a little wise and hasy as i felt that he would reach 10000 easily just needing 8 more runs to reach his milestone..
    And Giles just snares his wicket.. Teaches me a lesson..

    Oh well lets just make this a Brian Lara Appreciation Thread...

    You mate are guilty of giving poor Brian a cricket fan's (usually a commentator's) curse!!

    You're not the only one Lord. The ground put up that he had 10,000 test runs when he reached 9,900 runs. I thought there was a streaker on the ground becuase there was all this comotion and nothing happening. Apprently the scoreboard read that he had 10,000 runs, but Lara knew he didn't. So he just waited for the applause to die down.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Giles DID NOT get Lara. The umpire gave him that wicket. Brian did not touch that ball and it was not LBW. IT WAS SIMPLAY ANOTHER POOR DECISION FROM THE UMPIRES

    put a sock in it. This is the second time in as many matches that he's been on the wrong side of 2 very blatant wrong decisions. The umpires are at fault. They aren't doing their jobs.

    Please! The day an umpire goes through an entire test match with a 100% record is the day I start wearing women's underwear. Honestly, give it a go yourself and tell me it is easy. They make mistakes, it happens, life goes on, cricket goes on. If they consistently make mistakes, then fair enough complaign, but one match does not make a bad umpire. Ever had a bad day at work or school Revs?

    It was a poor decision agreed

    But mistakes do happen all the time and nothing can be done about it ..

    Snicko says otherwise.

    Yeah i don't think Brian would begrudge the odd poor decision, given that he was given not out when caught behind on 0 and went on to get 400*

    Yes - he is entitled to a few. This wasn't one of them, infact IMO the decision shows exactly why Taufel is the best umpire in the world.

    Yes, but try telling Revelation that.

    Before Snicko showed it, Lara's reaction suggested to me he knew he'd hit it.
