Trinidad to honour Lara
Brian Lara
Lara's innings in Antigua re-wrote the record books
The Trinidad prime minister has ordered a day of celebration on Monday to mark Brian Lara's world record Test score of 400 not out.

Lara will attend a gala celebration in his honour in Port of Spain followed by a motorcade ride through the city.

He is also expected to receive the Caricom Honour of Merit, the highest award available to a Trinidadian.

Lara set the record against England in Antigua, beating Australian Matthew Hayden's 380 last year.

It is the second time he has held the highest Test score, having previously made 375 against England, also in Antigua, a decade ago.

Lara returned home to Trinidad after being ordered to rest a finger injury.

It has put him out of the first two games in the one-day series, but he hopes to play in the third match in Port of Spain next Sunday.

The 34-year-old has played 106 Tests and 229 one-day internationals for West Indies and is currently in his second spell as captain.
