Laxman was born in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh (now Telangana).[6][7] Laxman’s parents are noted Physicians Dr. Shantaram and Dr. Satyabhama of Vijayawada. [8] Laxman studied at Little Flower High School, Hyderabad. He then enrolled as a medical student but chose cricket as a career over medicine. He was awarded an honorary doctorate degree on 4 February 2015 by Teri University, New Delhi.[9][10]

He married G. R. Shailaja from Guntur, who is a post-graduate in computer applications on 16 February 2004.[8] They have two children – a son, Sarvajit and a daughter, Achinthya. Laxman is the great grand nephew of India’s second President Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan

Vangipurapu Venkata Sai Laxman (About this sound pronunciation (help·info); born 1 November 1974), commonly known as V.V.S. Laxman (often VVS, and sometimes as “Very Very Special”), is a former Indian cricketer and currently a cricket commentator.[1]He is considered to be one of the greatest Indian batsmen of all time. Laxman was a right-hand aggressive batsman, who played mostly in the lower middle order. He is specifically known for his numerous match-winning and saving innings, and his special ability to consolidate unprecedented support from non-specialist, tail-end batsmen to do this has accorded him a unique status among cricketing legends.

Laxman performed outstandingly well against the best team of his times, Australia, and his knock of 281 against them in Eden Gardens in 2001 is often considered as the greatest ever test-innings.[2] In 2011, Laxman was awarded the Padma Shri award, India’s fourth highest civilian award.


Laxman is one of the few players who have played 100 Tests but have never played in a Cricket World Cup. Despite considered being a relatively slow runner between wickets, Laxman compensated it with his tremendous ability as an aggressive stroke player, who counter-attacked aggressive bowling and fielding tactics. However, he experienced an inexplicable conundrum of being asked to prove himself over and over and again, in order to find a place in the team.

Laxman represented Hyderabad in domestic cricket and played for Lancashire in English county cricket. He was also the captain of the Deccan Chargers team in the Indian Premier League in its inaugural season[4] In 2002, he was named one of Wisden’s five Cricketers of the Year. In 2012, Laxman retired from international cricket
