Brian Lara hits a scintillating century at Kensington Oval for the second time in 2005.

He was already scorching along at better than a run-a-ball at lunch, but in the afternoon session he really cut loose. He peppered the boundary all round the ground and by the time he fell, shortly before tea, he had faced just 120 balls.

He made a calculated attack on the Pakistani spinners - Danish Kaneria and Shahid Afridi - to such an extent that Kaneria was removed from the attack after eight expensive over as Younis Khan, Pakistan's stand-in captain, tried to restrain Lara.

The seamers were not exempt from the full force of Lara's bat, either, as he brought out his full array of drives, cuts and pulls. Anything seemed possible until he was bowled through the gate by Kaneria - after the legpsinner was bravely brought back into bowl - as Lara aimed another expansive drive through the covers. Kaneria deserves some plaudits for holding his nerve, a lesser bowler would have crumbled under such a powerful onslaught.
