Brian Lara powers towards his hundred
When Peterson came on during the second-last over the field was all up and I played every ball on its merit, the players were up and I went over the top. I did not know that 28 was a record and just did what I thought was right.
Today you saw a different Brian Lara, From what I learnt from Jimmy [Adams] and Carl [Hooper] I have become a more determined player and a better captain.
I woke up early this morning and watched the Indians play against Australia. Australia and South Africa are teams that the rest of us want to do well against and I took the impetus from Dravid, Laxman and Patel and played today from their strength.
Eric Simons: It was a hard day but I am really happy with the way we bowled, especially in the first and last session. It is two good teams and a good contest. On another day we could have bowled worse and come away in a better position. The Nel vs Lara contest was a good experience for the bowler bowling at one of the best batsmen in the world. He has picked up a lot of pace after some technical changes and losing some weight.
