'Adversity brought out the best in me' - Laxman
In an interview to the BCCI website, VVS Laxman opens up about several aspects of his batting and career, his upbringing, batting in different positions and his enviable success against the Australians.
In international cricket the opposition are smart enough to know which batsmen will be affected by sledging and which won’t. They realised it soon enough that their ploy of distracting me wasn’t going to work. A lot of people would be surprised to hear this, but for most part of my career, I’ve not been sledged by the Australians.
