History behind name

This cricket ground is named after Legendary West Indies cricket star Brian Lara, considered one of the greatest batsmen ever to step onto the ground. He was the one who changed the perspective of playing cricket. He was the most aggressive batsman at that time and he belongs to the Trinidad & Tobago cricket team too (actually he captained this team just at the age of 20) so to appreciate his efforts this academy was named after him.
