    spectre of the end

    The spectre of the end urges great warriors to do something extraordinary, and Lara looked the part. It was like yesterday once more, as the silken grace started tearing apart the South African bowling. But the battle-scarred weary limbs couldn't plough on for long.

    Please explain the highlighted group of words.

    Re: spectre of the end

    Spectre of the end- a haunting, disturbing fear that the end is near
    looked the part- he looked like a great competitor
    silken grace- he plays smoothly and beautifully
    tear apart- defeat
    battle-scarred weary limbs- he's a older player and his body couldn't keep playing at that that standard, becuase of the injuries he has received over the years
