    Laxman has lost it

    After watching vvs againsts the aussies its hard to see the great fall from grace. This dude used to whip the aussies but now he looks like a pile of @#$%!. Maybe he should retire and this is coming from a fan

    One bad series. Only one. Give him a break!

    This has the look of those threads that inspire a hundred from the subject...

    The outstanding series of Laxman's career
    v Aus 503 runs @ 83.83
    v WI 474 runs @ 79.00
    v WI 271 runs @ 90.33
    v NZ 279 runs @ 139.50
    v Aus 494 @ 82.33

    Someone needs a serious stats check. Laxman has never had a good series against Pakistan. He averages 26.20 against them in 10 innings with 2 fifties spread across 3 series.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    It happens! Even the great batsmen can't be at their best all the time. It's unfortunate that it's come at such a time, but that doesn't make him a villain suddenly.

    Laxman isn't a great batsman though. He's ordinary. His time in the sun has been and gone. He was a fringe player who took a long time to establish himself, hit a rich vein of form (mostly against Australia) and then reverted to his normal self.

    I said even the great batsmen. I never said Laxman is great. That said, I don't think he's ordinary either.

    i just think its frustrating, Laxman was meant to be one of India's trump cards and him saying he was aiming for Lara's record before the series was the icing on the cake, how much has he averaged this series? does ne1 know? i dont think hes lost it but for a player who normally does so well against australia its disappointing to see him fail and warne turn him into his b*tch

    I haven't looked at the stats, but he might be 50:50, and that's good enough. Find me a batsman who performs better than that, and he'd be one of the greats... Laxman I believe is really good, can't call him great though.
