Brian Lara has been dismissed in the Marylebone Cricket Club-Rest of the World XI encounter at Lord’s He was caught behind off the bowling off Paul Collingwood in the 30th over. It was a good little innings, during which Lara played those typical shots through the off-side. Just before being dismissed he smashed a gracious cover drive for a four. To make matters worse for the MCC, Rahul Dravid was bowled first ball when he inside edged one and it went onto the stumps.
Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar had dazzled during his innings of 44 before being dismissed by Muttiah Muralitharan. But, Aaron Finch has been the star so far as he got his ton just before the two wickets fell. Now, Shivnarine Chanderpaul has walked out to the middle.
In 30 overs, MCC are 174 for three. Chanderpaul played the hat-trick ball safely with men around the bat.
