West Indies legend Brian Lara signs for NSW pub cricket team


Former West Indian captain and one of the greatest batsmen in cricket history, Brian Lara, was in the Hunter Valley over the weekend for a number of scheduled appearances and called into the Albion Hotel in the town of Wickham on Friday.

Lara, who last played for his country in 2007, signed a contract with a local New South Wales pub cricket team after being offered to play for them during his visit to Hunter Valley in Sydney.

According to a report published in Fairfax Media, players from The Bennett Hotel Centurions saw Lara at a local pub and presented him with a contract. With the signed paperwork sent to the local association with a note stating ‘this is not a hoax’ and a shot of Lara penning the deal, the contract was approved.
