L Sivaramakrishnan Biography

Laxman Sivaramakrishnan popularly known as Siva and LS, is a former Indian cricketer. He was a right arm leg-spinner. At fifteen, he was the youngest member of the Under-19 India squad that toured Sri Lanka under Ravi Shastri in 1980. He started his first class career at the age of 16. Siva's second Test appearance was in the first Test against England at the Bombay. His first wicket was Graeme Fowler who was caught and bowled off a full toss. In the World Championship of Cricket in Australia in the same season, he finished as the top wicket taker. It was a time when spinners, especially leg-spinners, were considered a luxury in one day cricket. His next season saw a sudden drop of form. He played a Test in Sri Lanka and two in Australia with little success. He made an unexpected comeback to the 1987 World Cup team and played in two matches. He contributed three centuries when Tamil Nadu won the Ranji trophy in 1987/88. He is now a commentator.
