Brian Lara says West Indies have not much to fear about Australia

West Indies great Brian Lara says his young prodigy, Adrian Barath, proved to the team's veterans there is not much to fear about the Australia cricket team.
Lara, who retired from cricket in 2007, said it will be difficult for West Indies to bounce back after their embarrassing defeat in the first Test at the Gabba despite Barath showing some chinks in the Australia attack.

The 18-year-old became the youngest West Indies player to score a Test century.

"I think it will be difficult," Lara told reporters when asked if he thought West Indies could recover from the defeat.

"Obviously a defeat within three days, it's going to be hard.

"But, there are some positives.

"The likes of Adrian Barath scoring runs, a debutant, should tell the likes of Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Chris Gayle, Ramnaresh Sarwan if he is back and Dwayne Bravo that there is not much to be feared in the Australia cricket team."

Lara, 40, was honoured at a ceremony in his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd .

Rudd appointed him an Honorary Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia for his work with young West Indies and Australian cricketers.

Rudd was in the Caribbean to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.
