Brian Lara, the West Indies cricket legend has fallen in love with a model twenty years younger than him! The girl, Jamie Bowers, a Miss Scotland is just 24. The girl is a Trinidad born, Lara’s home town. They were introduced to each other by another Caribbean sports hero, Manchester United’s Dwight Yorke quite recently.
Lara is said to be completely smitten by the young girl and is going about revealing his feelings for her to all his friends. Speaking about their romance, Jamey said: “He’s charming, romantic and fun. We’ll see what happens.” Then she added, “It’s early days. I didn’t want anyone to know, but Brian’s been declaring his love all over the place.”
Lara had been in relationships twice before. He is father of two girls with his last mate. Jamie Bowers was girl friend to a footballer Andy Driver.
Lara has many cricketing records on his name including the only quadruple century in a test. He is also the record holder for scoring highest number of runs in a first-class match, 501 not out against Warwickshire in 1994.
