Cricket legend Brian Lara has never had a problem hitting sixes, but since retirement, he's caught a perfect 10.

The Daily Mail reports that the former West Indies captain, Lara has announced that he is dating the current Miss Scotland, Jamey Bowers, who at 24 is 20 years younger than the cricketing legend.

The couple were introduced to each other by Trinidad and Tobago legend and former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke.

Lara is considered one of the greatest batsmen to play the game, propelling his West Indies team to be one of the best nations around during his playing days.

A frequent record breaker, Lara holds the record for the highest individual score in first class cricket. In 1994, he scored 501 not out for Warwickshire.

The former batsmen is described by his new beau as being "charming, romantic and fun".

Whilst the batsmen never had an problem with the bat, it looks like his catching ability is just as strong.
