He broke Hanif Mohammad's record of 499 which was made in 1959, and it stands to this day. 1987 was a breakthrough year for Lara, when in the West Indies Youth Championships he scored 498 runs breaking the record of 480 by Carl Hooper set the previous year. Sally Morris – wife of former Durham and England batsman John Morris – had this to say: ‘It was fantastic… All cricket and non-cricket fans will love this!’.
Brian Lara achieved immortality with the highest score in first-class cricket history: 501 not out. Nevertheless, with just two balls to go, he hit the next one to the boundary and a record which had stood for 35 years had been broken.
A welter of other records went as well, including the most boundaries in an innings and most runs in a day, but by now all attention was on the big one, Hanif’s 499. The previous record, held by Hanif Mohammad for 35 years, has always appeared as unattainable as Gary Sobers’ Test record had.

That spot had been occupied by the South African fast bowler Allan Donald since 1987, but international duty had made him unavailable for the 1994 season.

Thus, on the final day, only academic interest was left in the game after the home side had avoided the follow-on. ‘Records are there to be broken and I’m happy to be the one doing it. After breaking the record, Lara said: ‘I don’t think I’m a great cricketer. Such is Lara’s appetite for runs one wonders whether this record will last the season.
