Sorry, no runner for Laxman: Ponting

Bengaluru: Australian skipper Ricky Ponting has already announced that V.V.S. Laxman will not get a runner, if he asks for one, for the Bengaluru Test.

"Laxman cannot come into a match with pre-existing injuries and then ask for a runner," he said when asked whether he would allow one if he happens to play the match.

"He did not look uncomfortable at all while batting in Mohali. However, we are not really bothered about his presence in the team," he added.

Laxman an unsung star, says Gilchrist

 V. V. S. Laxman is the unsung hero of Indian cricket because by his nature itself he doesn’t express himself to the outside world and he is not a billboard cricketer making headlines with all those endorsements, says Adam Gilchrist, former Australia captain while referring to the Hyderabadi’s match-winning effort against Australia in the first Test in Mohali recently.

“But, when it comes to skills, it is very obvious that VVS enjoys the challenge of facing a crisis. It is a pity that he remains the unsung star of Indian batting line-up which includes Sachin, Rahul, Virender (Sehwag) and earlier Saurav,” Gilchrist pointed out during his private visit to Hyderabad as brand ambassador of University of Wollongong (Sydney) here on Friday.

Laxman inspires remarkable India victory over Australia

MOHALI, India — Venkatsai Laxman defied a back injury to make an unbeaten 73 as India snatched a remarkable one-wicket victory from the jaws of defeat in the opening Test against Australia on Tuesday.
Needing 216 to win, India were facing defeat at 124-8 before Laxman came to his team's rescue with a brave knock under pressure on the fifth and final day, guiding his side to a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.
Batting with a runner because of a stiff back, Laxman was well supported by tail-ender Ishant Sharma, who made a defiant 31 in an 81-run stand for the ninth wicket before being trapped leg-before by Ben Hilfenhaus (4-57).
