yesturday no one thought that lexman will do this for India in this crucial situation of the third and final match against srilanka......... Laxman shown his all experience in a very crucial situation to the No: 1 team in test criket..... Lexman with Sachin and Raine did a very good thing for the Indians.......... with our any doubt we can tell that was a great innings..... we all should thank him for this great victory over srilanka......

India won a test match after a miserable start in the series especially in the first test. Sehwag scored 2 centuries and missed another for 1 run only. He took crucial 3 wickets in the final test. Indians bowlers especially the spinners were in the hunt for the wickets and they played the key role to turn the match for the Indians side. Had they bowled well in the previous two tests the series scoreline would be different. Laxman found his touch and showed his class again after many days. His cut, pull which are really magnificent were missing for many days as he was struggling in the past few matches. Finally he found his form and when Indians were really needing. Tendulkar again contributed in his record 169th test match with a half century and again proved he's still independent. His and Laxman's century partnership prevented any further damages and finally drew the test series which kept the Indian team the World No.1 Test team for dew more weeks for sure. The absence of few players like Harbhajan, Gambhir and Yuvraj didn't impact much as the others hardly let us feel their absence. The triangular ODI series is going to start within three days and with the absent of few experienced players the juniors are getting another chance to prove themselves. Few players including Tendulkar, Gambhir, Harbhajan, Zaheer has stepped down with injuries. Still Dhoni having a pack of match winners and well stocked players in his team. And the young stars who played in the test series have gained experiences and confidences which will help them in the ODI series.

VVS is a real special talent..playing 130 matches for india is no mean feat. He is the corner stone or rather a pillar in the indian batting... you cannot ignore him. he has an important impact on the game which other teams do not notice (i guess) as others concentrate in getting Ssehwag, Tendulkar out as they are flambouyant and stroke makers..even Dravid (being a wall) so concentration is to get these players out..and Laxman is left free..which is an advantage to him. Intereting statistics of VVS is that he a bradmansque average of 99 in tests in 2010....VERY VERY SPECIAL...thats Laxman for India
