V.V.S Laxman Biography & Wiki, Height, Weight, Age, Birth date
Vangipurapu Venkata Sai Laxman (born 1 November 1974), commonly known as V.V.S. Laxman(often VVS, and sometimes as “Very Very Special”), is a former Indian cricketer and currently a cricket commentator He is considered to be one of the greatest batsman of all time.
Laxman was a right-hand aggressive batsman, who played mostly in the lower middle order. 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. In 2011, Laxman was awarded the Padma Shri award, India’s fourth highest civilian award.
Laxman is one of the few players who have played 100 Tests but have never played in a Cricket World Cup. Despite considered being a relatively slow runner between wickets, Laxman compensated it with his tremendous ability as an aggressive stroke player, who counter-attacked aggressive bowling and fielding tactics. However, he experienced an inexplicable conundrum of being asked to prove himself over and over and again, in order to find a place in the team.
Laxman represented Hyderabad in domestic cricket and played for Lancashire in English county cricket. He was also the captain of the Deccan Chargers team in the Indian Premier League in its inaugural season In 2002, he was named one of Wisden’s five Cricketers of the Year.
In 2012, Laxman retired from international cricket.
