Laxman said that he did this so as to facilitate youngsters fair chance of proving themselves and thus serving the nation.The sober and subtle batsman for once almost broke into tears and was evidently emotional about the decision.Laxman has not been playing up-to his levels during last two series in England and Down-Under.

The veteran of Indian cricket team, who used to bat at number 5 in test matches batting order has thus put an end to a long carior of over 16 year test cricket in which he had scored well over eight thousand(8,781) runs in 134 matches.Laxman scored 17 test hundreds and 56 half centuries in his illustrious successful carrier.

Since making his debut in international cricket back in 1996 against S. Africa he has played some of the most memorable innings of all times. His most famous one was that of 281 runs against the mighty Aussies at Kolkata that changed complexion of the whole Indian cricket team. Laxman for some mysterious causes used to be at his best against them and in all his hundreds he scored 6 while playing Australia with two double hundreds.

So now two of our greatest ever middle order batsman retiring in short time span Indian cricket might go into some kind of transition phase. Whether youngster like S. Badrinath can fill up his shoes ably will be proven in future; but one thing is sure that Indian cricket might not get a second VERY VERY SPECIAL Laxman. 
  • Do you think that V.V.S. Laxman has been forced to exit midway without his will to do so?
