Brian Lara should be given time to sort out his career, the West Indies team manager, Wes Hall, said yesterday. Lara withdrew from the current tour of Australia at the last minute after being fined for misconduct during the summer tour of England. "I think that what you all should do is to leave Brian Lara alone and let him and the West Indies Board work out their problems. Pressure is what turns a rock into diamond but it can turn it into dust," Hall said.
TOUR MATCH (First day of four; Newcastle, NSW): West Indies 238 (C Hooper 63, S Campbell 53; D Freedman 8 for 47); New South Wales 13 for 0.
