Vangipurapu Venkata Sai Laxman commonly known as V.V.S. Laxman, is a former Indian cricketer and currently a cricket commentator. He is considered to be one of the greatest batsman of all time. Laxman is known for his fluid style, technically sound and aggressive. Sambil Bal of ESPN Crincinfo writes: "At his sublime best, VVS Laxman is a sight for the gods. Wristy, willowy and sinuous, he can match - sometimes even better - Tendulkar for strokeplay. He has the rare gift of being able to hit the same ball to either side." He was equally skilled against both pace and spin, with great timing and outstanding ability to place the ball splitting the tightest field positions. Laxman was particularly skillful in using his wrists that allowed him to place the same ball to different areas of the field.
