Brian Lara visits Stonyhurst

Some of Stonyhurst’s senior cricket squad had the privilege of meeting cricketing legend Brian Lara, on Tuesday 3rd September.

Mr Lara discussed plans for a possible cricket tour to Trinidad in 2015 with the Headmaster and the Director of Sport, before having a tour of the College.

Brian Lara holds several cricketing records including the record for the highest individual score in first-class cricket, with 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston in 1994 – the only quintuple hundred in first-class cricket history. Perhaps his most famous achievement is the record for the highest ever individual test cricket score of 400 not out.
