- Categorized in: Mello FM News
West Indies batting giant Brian Lara is set to be inducted into the International Cricket Council`s Hall of Fame during the world body`s annual Awards on September 15.
Lara is a living legend in international cricket with 11,953 runs from 131 tests and another 10,405 from 299 one-dayers.
The 43-year-old holds several records, including the highest individual score in first-class cricket, with 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston in 1994, which is the only quintuple hundred in first-class cricket history.
Lara also holds the record for the highest individual score in a test innings (400 not out against England at Antigua in 2004).
He is the only batsman to have scored a hundred, a double century, a triple century, a quadruple century and a quintuple century.
