He is 37 years and his age is catching up as a sportsman many would say. Give him the honor as they did to Ganguly, Khumble and David’s ODI retirement. He worked hard and bound to fight back soon. He will silence his critics and makes all the stones thrower at him and converted them to milestones. Be it home or down under Laxman always prevails against Kangaroos. This series may be an exception Laxman’s contribution to Indian cricket , from swash buckling knock of 291 against Australia , at Edens’s in 2001 to 176 not out at the same venue against WI has been incredible, how can media for get it ? Kangaroos are playing in their own den, let us wait, when they reach and play in India, and a potential 4-0 slot of Australia in India will be a perfect recipe as we should call that Australia is playing at home and that is why they are winning. We have seen the England won at home defeated India but failed five zero los to India. Australia will be feeling the same at India. Australia coach M. Arthur boasting about his team’s win against India but what is new at it? India is always not good playing at Australia and also M. Arthur being slot miserably as South Africa coach as lost World cup to India and must be solace his wounded sole as if he had won the world cup and is why making statements at the media. At the beginning of the series there has been talk of Hussey retirement by partial Kangaroos media , after making a century after a long gap of time now the same Australia media is saying he is the future and now they are against Laxman. Now everything is forgotten and India media is following what Australia media saying a pattern known as colonialism or should I say virtual colonialism. Can India media support these greats and suggest how to improve and be positive. Support your team in hours of crisis and this applies to former greats like Kapil Dev and Gavaskar so that they will go over this slope, nothing is impossible, remember men are born to succeed not fail. Dhoni clears the air , that there is no such move of Laxman’s retirement. Dhoni hinted that there could be phasing out of senior players. It is natural and no question over it. In the last two years Laxman was the savior as the match winner or match saver for India. He scored when the team needs most and do we forget the knocks against the Lanka or at Mohali (vs Australia) or at Ahmadabad (NZ) or in South Africa. All these efforts came in last two years. In cricket, average does not matter for real cricket enthusiasts it only matters for the media persons .Laxman played very important innings when the team needed most but surprisingly the role played by India media sees like just the average playing. In the last two years and till the recently concluded WI series Laxman always be the savior for team India. I think the memory of critics are very short , critics which included many former players whose records now been mediocre in present of these greats are now questioning the currently greats. They are saying the age is catching up with Laxman and questioning his fitness but Laxman is always a safe catcher and he is no longer in the ODI. Laxman should not be bothered by criticisms of so called critics. He is always let his bat to do the talking. He has the ability to come good in the crunch situations.
