BIO: Vangipurapu Venkata Sai Laxman, popularly known as V.V.S. Laxman, is a former Indian cricketer. He was the captain of the Deccan Chargers team in the Indian Premier League in its first year. Laxman also has Padma Shri awardto his credit. He is a right handed batsman who occasionally bowls off spin. His superb timing and the ability to hit against the spin often draws comparison with his idol, Mohammad Azharuddin. VVS Laxman is particularly admired for the skilful use of his supple wrists, which allow him to flick the ball sinuously to various places, especially through the leg side. A one time mediacl student, Laxman came in to terms with his true calling after crushing the invincible Australians with an awe inspiring 281 runs. The Australia team has so often been in the receiving side of his dexterity that he was paid the highest compliments by the Australians who begrudgingly admitted they did not know where to bowl to him. He has two double-centuries in Tests, both of them against Australia. However, in 2011 the runs dried up in two successive overseas trips - in two successive overseas trips - in eight innings in England he scored 182, and then the poor run continued against his favourite opponent, Australia. On 18 August 2012, VVS Laxman announced his retirement from international cricket.
