Brian Lara is a former cricketer. His family enrolled him into a community coaching school when he was six, and he had cricket practice every Sunday.
When Lara was fourteen years old, his friend Michael got him his first ever job in an office. Lara knew that he did not want to work in an office for the rest of his life, so he joined the under-16 league of national schoolboys’ cricket. In Lara’s first year of playing in the league, he scored 745 points, an impressive achievement.
Immediately after this, he was selected to play for the Trinidad National Cricket under-16 team. In 1987, Lara broke the record for most points scored in a game in the whole of the West Indies! By 1988, he was captain of the West Indies team in the youth World Cup.
Whenever Lara felt the pressure of always performing to a high level, he remembered how much he loved playing. Over the course of his lifetime, Lara won many awards. In 1995, he was awarded Cricketer of the Year, and he still holds the record of scoring the most points in a single game.
