Very Very Special Laxman

Laxman as always received plaudits as the best savior for India in Test matches. He hasn't disappointing us with the 14th century he scored against Kiwis at Napier. India could have easily handed the defeat to kiwis but for the rescue effort from Gambhir and Laxman. What makes him so special is he bats effortlessly and no one will disagree me on that. He is class , elegant , stylish player but for this running between the wickets which has kept him away from One dayers.

I can't remember the last test match where he has not rallied himself with the tail enders. He is effortless in doing that and has several times put India into safe waters. This make him Very special.

Let's not forget his contribution over the last decade , am feeling nervous about the player who is going to replace him. I personally can't finish this blog without pointing out the knock against Oz at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, nice memories. India is at its peak when Laxman is around and this seems to be best chance for the Team India to reach the numero one in Tests. I hope MSD is fit for the next match Wellington. I would like to see one more change in the Indian lineup with L.Balaji replacing Munaf Patel.
