There will be more than a few double takes in the Lord's crowd when Darren Bravo starts batting for West Indies in Thursday's first Test. It will be as if one of the greatest of them all has made a comeback.
How West Indies would love to be able to call on Brian Lara when their callow batting line-up faces the fiercest of examinations at the hands of England's attack in miserable early summer conditions.
Yet, at least they can boast the next best thing. For Bravo, half-brother of Dwayne and a cousin of the great Lara himself, is like a clone of his illustrious relative. It is just like watching Lara. It is no coincidence.
