Brian Lara, who was inducted into the ICC's Hall of Fame at the awards ceremony in Colombo on Friday evening, dedicated the honour to his late father Bunty Lara, who died before his son played a Test.

Lara ended his 17-year international career as Test cricket's leading run-scorer, with 11 thousand 953 runs at an average of 52.88 in 131 matches, a record that has been beaten since.

However, he still holds the record for the highest individual score - 400 against England in Antigua in 2004.

In the 299 ODIs that he played, Lara scored 10 thousand 405 runs at an average of 40.48.
