Very Very Special Laxman: The steel beneath the silk
What Laxman did for the match at Mohali, or for that matter making excellent contributions in 4th innings at very difficult times, is just marvellous and extraordinary.
I still wonder why he has not been named as ‘Player of the Match’ for Mohali, if not for him, India would definitely lose the match.
When everything is falling/ failing in front of your eyes, it is extremely difficult to maintain balance, focus and of all, the courage to defend and win. His life just demonstrates that quality which is flatly missing from the rest of the players.
Hope BCCI, Media and community will give him due respect for his commitment and contributions to the team and country.
