On birthday, Sachin Tendulkar 'spills out' VVS Laxman's secret

On birthday, Sachin Tendulkar 'spills out' VVS Laxman's secret”

"Happy birthday, Lax! Shall I spill out the secret behind your ability to score runs?"

Tendulkar, who was Laxman's India team-mate for several years and was part of memorable successes and also disappointments, took to the micro-blogging website Twitter to reveal the secret behind Laxman's incredible run-scoring ability. Taking a shower and eating an apple before going to bat.

While thinking about Laxman's skills not many would have thought that an apple and a shower is the secret to the wristy magician. "Thank you very much for your wishes, Viru", Laxman tweeted in reply.

The two players shared great bonding and had stitched numerous marathon partnerships for the national side during their playing days. As it was Laxman's birthday, former and current cricketers lined-up to wish the Very Very Special batsman on his birthday. "Wishing #WristJaadugar & Bhrata Shri @VVSLaxman281 a very happy birthday.Can calm any situation with a flick of his wrists.Chitiyan Kalaiyan", Viru tweeted. Australia had won the first Test in Mumbai and had a strong command in the second Test at Eden Gardens until Laxman stepped up to the fore.

Last year, former skipper Sourav Ganguly too had said Laxman would spend time in the shower even when he was slotted to go into bat next.

Laxman played 134 Tests and scored 8781 runs at an average of 45.97, notching up 17 centuries and 56 fifties.
