West Indies - Captain Fantastic
Brian Charles Lara
Age 37
ODI debut v Pakistan, November 1990

Brian Lara will be nearly 38 by the time of the final, but can still dazzle the crowds with a scintillating innings.

Whilst he does not score the volume of runs of his pomp, and the last of his 19 ODI centuries came in January 2005, he remains an influential figurehead in an inconsistent team.

The Windies have been far more successful in one-dayers than Tests in recent years, Lara lifted the Champions Trophy in 2004 and, also against the odds, led his team to the final late last year.
