We didn’t see Adrian Barath’s hundred against an Australia bowling attack that we feel professionally obliged to describe as ‘rampant’. Was it any good?
Brian Lara though Barath was some prospect when he saw him batting in the nets, aged 11. Being as Barath’s 19 now, he must have been dossing about for his teen years. He could have been in the Test side at 13, but no, he was either writing on the back of Chris’s neck with a biro during maths or wasting the day indoors playing on his PS2, even though it was a beautiful day outside.
