Vangipurapu Venkata Sai Laxman, the stylish Hyderabadi cricketer, is all set to call it a day.The 37-year-old middle-order batsman is likely to quit international cricket soon after the two-Test cricket series against New Zealand, commencing on August 23. The first match of the series will be played in his home town of Hyderabad.Laxman is expected to make the announcement on his retirement in a day or two.The “Very Very Special” batsman, who has been out of form for the last two seasons, reportedly told his close friends in the field and a couple of sports correspondents on Friday that he had decided to retire from international cricket and would like to make an announcement to this effect before the commencement of the India-New Zealand Test series for which he was picked up.”I would take a final call after discussing with my parents, wife, well-wishers, coaches and other friends,” he is learnt to have said.Laxman did not respond to the calls and text messages when Mail Today tried to contact him to get confirmation about the reports on his retirement. Sources close to him, however, confirmed that he made up his mind to bid adieu to cricket.Laxman, who made his debut in 1996 against South Africa, has played 134 Tests scoring 8,781 runs, including 17 centuries and 56 fifties, at an average of 45.97. He has also played 86 ODIs, scoring 2,338 runs with six hundreds.Sources said Laxman had, in fact, decided to announce retirement much before the selection of team for the two-match Test series against New Zealand. “The retirement of Rahul Dravid brought a lot of pressure on him to follow suit, as he had not performed well in both the Test series in Australia and England. Since then, he was toying up with the idea of quitting international cricket,” sources said.In fact, Laxman’s average during the four-Test series against Australia was 19.38, and before that, he had just averaged 22.75 in the series against England. In between these two series, however, he had put up a good show against the West Indies in a three-Test home series by scoring 298 runs with a stupendous average of 99.33.Following the pathetic performance in Australia, Laxman was under pressure to quit, as there was criticism against him that he was blocking the chances of youngsters. He was apprehensive that he might not be picked up for the series with New Zealand, but the selectors have thought otherwise. They picked him up for the squad as they apparently thought a senior cricketer like him would be the backbone of the team in the absence of Dravid. As a result, Laxman decided to play for the last time for the country.”Obviously, he wants to retire with grace by putting up a decent performance in the home series,” sources said. – With inputs from Mail Today advertisement
