WATCH: Lara injured in fall at home Laura Dowrich-Phillips Created : 15 September 2017 Sport Cricket legend Brian Lara is laid up in bed following injuries sustained to his left leg after he fell 10 feet down a staircase at home. In a video he posted to social media, Lara is seen with bandages around his knee and shin. He said he fell on the staircase leading to his garden because the railings are not yet installed. Lara appeared in good spirits, however. He said he had his bag of plum and his television remote to watch the Fedex Cup golf tournament was on TV.
