The flourish was back as was the timing. The master who had stated his intention of reclaiming the title of the best batsman in the world went on to stamp his authority on the match. After a relatively slow start, Lara reached his 16th ODI ton off just 121 balls, with the aid of 10 fours and two sixes. By the time he was out after scoring 116 off 134 balls, West Indies at 215/5 in the 46th over were well and truly back in the game.
