      Would Lara have scored so much if the other batsmen had not been
so unselfish (I a'm assuming that by looking at their scores)? What
actually did transpire? Wow, will he now cross 499. I'm keeping my
fingers crossed.  This is the "mother of all purple patches!"  
  (just wondering how long it will take before Lara starts getting
compared to a certain Australian player long since retired. Hmmm.)

    Just noticed a couple of things AFTER my previous posting

a) 636 runs in just 109 overs. WOW! Thats almost 6 an over for a
prolonged period of time.
b) Lara scored his 418 in about 370 balls (approx) which means about 62
to 64 overs out of 109. The other batsmen would have played about 45
overs. Not too much of a ball hogging by Lara, it appears.

  Having scored 260 out of 400 in boundaries and sixers., he must have
run 140 runs. And considering the running he has been doing in the past
6 weeks one can't help but admire his stamina. How long can he last at
this rate? Is his streak dependant on this factor or will some weakness
in his batting be exploited by the bowlers. I wouldn't be surprised if I
heard of him taking some "breaks" soon a la Ambrose.

Only 75 to go for the world record first class score. Lets hope he
doesn't get run out. Puts the other Warwickshire bats to shame:
Lara 425*, next highest score, Extras 62 !!!!

If I'm counting right, Lara has 11 first class centuries since 1st Jan.
Anyone know what the record is for the most first class centuries in
a calendar year ??

 When Lara crossed 365 mark in Test cricket someone mentioned
 that he called CNN sports and urged them to show a clipping,
 and we all got to see two marvelour boundaries off Lara's
 bat. I think we ought to urge CNN to do the same this time
 as well. Perhaps someone could post the CNN sports phone number?

 Last time the clipping was shown in CNN sports tonight as the
 play of the day at around 11.20pm edt.

I would love to see the fall of wickets and the bowling figures for this
game. If I were captaining Durham I'd have bowled everyone including the
wicketkeeper by now.

        I will post the full card for this match tomorrow. I believe one
of the bowlers had figures in the vicinity of 0/280. The final score was
810/4, by the way. Three cheers for Lara.

Dunno for a calendar year, but the record in an English season is 18 by
Dennis Compton in 1947. Only eleven to go. :-)
