V V S LAXMAN - Best Innings

LAXMAN, Very Very Special name in the Indian Cricket Team has announced his retirement from international cricket on 18 August 2012, Although he was selected for the upcoming New Zealand series, he opted not to play in the series. It was announced that the Northern Stand at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium will now be named after him


Laxman bats right-handed and occasionally bowls off-spin. He is noted for his superb timing and the ability to hit against the spin, reminiscent of his role model Mohammed Azharuddin. Laxman is particularly noted for the skilful use of his supple wrists, which allow him to flick the ball to various places, but usually through the leg side. This also helps in his catching, and he typically fields in the slips or in a bat pad position.

Laxman is widely criticized as a slow runner between the wickets and he is one of the few players who have played 100 Tests but have never played in the Cricket World Cup.

"If you get Dravid, great. If you get Sachin, brilliant. If you get Laxman, it's a miracle." Brett Lee repeats the words of wisdom of his former captain, Steve Waugh

Achievements :
  • Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian award, 2011.
  • Arjuna Award, by the Government of India in recognition of his outstanding achievement in sports, 2001.
  • Wisden Cricketer of the Year: 2002.
  • He is one of the few cricketers to score the most number of centuries (3) in a single ODI series.
  • His innings of 281 against Australia at Kolkata in 2001 was ranked sixth in Wisden's list of 100 great Test innings in the history of the game.
  • He has the record of taking the most number of catches(12) by a non-wicketkeeper in an single ODI series. He shares this record with Allan Border

He has always been at his best against Australians. During the first Test in Mohali of Airtel Cup. Laxman was suffering with a back problem and needed Suresh Raina as his runner, and the Indians had collapsed to 124/8 in pursuit of 216. He and paceman Ishant Sharma put on 81 to take the score to 205 before Sharma fell. Last man Pragyan Ojha then managed to survive till the end as the hosts completed a thrilling one-wicket win. Laxman ended on 73 not out. He was ruled out of the remaining matches of the series due to his injury.

Watch the video of it to feel from where he pulled a win, to add, he stopped Ricky Ponting enjoy his first success as captain in the Indian soil.
