of late Lara has failed to gather runs. He has failed in 4 consecutive innings against the New Zelanders and in his previous tuor to Australia he had only one score out of six to show.
Is Lara past his time? Has the responsibility to single handedly carry the mantle of West Indian batting weighed him down? Or is it one of the slumps which will be overcomed by lara's characteristic determination and charisma.
Only time will tell-and Lara is trying very hard to woo the time on his side. He has actually lost substantial weight in the last 6 months.
