West Indies went to lunch with 85/7. I'm confused now, who are the minnows?

Damn! That looks like a vicious delivery from Streak.

This is gonna be the first tour series for WI in a LOOONG time.

Looking back, Lara's 191 seems quite pivotal for the match. Had he been satisfied with a small century and threw his wicket away, ZIM could have been looking at a much more gettable target.

Question : When was the last time a Lara century contributed to a West Indian win ?

Take a guess.

Right. It is the 153* in March 1999. It took 56 months before Lara scored another matchwinning century.
