VVS Laxman

VVS Laxman

Former Indian cricketer and commentator


Laxman was a right-hand aggressive batsman, who played mostly in the lower middle order, coming in after the other four ‘greats’. He is specifically known for his numerous match-winning and saving innings, and his special ability to consolidate unprecedented support from non-specialist, tail-end batsmen to do this has accorded him a unique status among cricketing legends. Laxman performed outstandingly well against the best team of his times, Australia, and his knock of 281 against them in Eden Gardens in 2001 is often considered as the greatest ever test-innings.┬áIn 2011, Laxman was awarded the Padma Shri award, India’s fourth highest civilian award.
