Harsha on Lara

Some of my musings on Lara's recent form are better articulated by Mr.Bhogle:

There seems a new freedom now in Lara’s mind. The conflicts of a brilliant but slightly wayward youth appear to have been erased, the responsibility that seems to replace a smile with a scowl seems easily handled now
and he wonders how Lara shall feel at the end of his glittering (individual) career:
Allan Border and Steve Waugh, two that still stand ahead of him, weren’t quite as gifted, they were like forts to Lara’s horseman, but they played in winning teams. When the record is his, and his alone, even if for the moment, and Lara takes off those dancing shoes, he will ask himself what he would have preferred.
