The first decade of the 21st century gave India its most decorated test team ever. It started with the opening of Sachin and Sehwag followed by the strong middle order dominated by Dravid and VVS Laxman, then the finishing by Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni.
In the bowling line up we had two great swing bowlers Irfan Pathan and Zaheer Khan and a speedster Ajit Agarkar, also the bowling line up had two big spinners Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh who were devastating on spinning tracks. This team dominated almost every side inthe world and won everywhere they went. They created many records and hence they’ll forever remember in the memory of every cricket fan.
Importance of VVS:
A very important member of this squad was VVS Laxman, he was known for his ability to provide strength in the middle order. Having an orthodox classical batting style he won India many matches from pressure situations in the fourth innings. His innings of 281 in Eden gardens, Kolkata against Australia will always be remembered for taking India from a losing position to victory.
He turned 46 on 1 November and wishes poured in from the cricketing fraternity all over the world with everyone reliving their memories with the Very Very Special Laxman. Here are some of the tweets by various cricketers
