One Last Look At An Elegant Batsman in Cricket

Just over an hour ago, the last 'Super Eight Stage' game of the ninth edition of the cricket world cup kicked off at Bridgetown. With all the semifinalists of the tournament already decided, this match is inconsequential. Still, this game would be watched by millions of viewers across the world for one main reason that after today, one of the Cricket's extraordinary batsmen would never take the cricket field again. Brian Charles Lara, one of my favourite cricketers would play International Cricket one last time. After the retirement of Steve Waugh I had stopped watching Cricket to a greater extent. But Lara's heroic moments always remained very dear to me and I have always enjoyed watching him play Cricket. Perhaps, I watched Cricket in the 'Post-Steve Waugh' era only to watch the entertaining Lara. Of course there used to be so many controversies surrounding this great cricketer and he is leaving the West Indies team in a shape that's certainly not promising. But Brian Lara is one such cricketer whom the entire Cricket loving fans, including the Australian legend Steve Waugh, loved to watch, anytime, always. It is indeed sad that, today, we have reached the dead end of the fascinating journey with Lara rather abruptly.
