LAXMAN, Very Very Special name in the Indian Cricket Team has announced his retirement from international cricket on 18 August 2012, Although he was selected for the upcoming New Zealand series, he opted not to play in the series. It was announced that the Northern Stand at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium will now be named after him

Laxman bats right-handed and occasionally bowls off-spin. He is noted for his superb timing and the ability to hit against the spin, reminiscent of his role model Mohammed Azharuddin. Laxman is particularly noted for the skilful use of his supple wrists, which allow him to flick the ball to various places, but usually through the leg side. This also helps in his catching, and he typically fields in the slips or in a bat pad position.

Laxman is widely criticized as a slow runner between the wickets and he is one of the few players who have played 100 Tests but have never played in the Cricket World Cup.

"If you get Dravid, great. If you get Sachin, brilliant. If you get Laxman, it's a miracle." Brett Lee repeats the words of wisdom of his former captain, Steve Waugh

Achievements :
  • Padma Shri, India's fourth highest civilian award, 2011.
  • Arjuna Award, by the Government of India in recognition of his outstanding achievement in sports, 2001.
  • Wisden Cricketer of the Year: 2002.
  • He is one of the few cricketers to score the most number of centuries (3) in a single ODI series.
  • His innings of 281 against Australia at Kolkata in 2001 was ranked sixth in Wisden's list of 100 great Test innings in the history of the game.
  • He has the record of taking the most number of catches(12) by a non-wicketkeeper in an single ODI series. He shares this record with Allan Border


He has always been at his best against Australians. During the first Test in Mohali of Airtel Cup. Laxman was suffering with a back problem and needed Suresh Raina as his runner, and the Indians had collapsed to 124/8 in pursuit of 216. He and paceman Ishant Sharma put on 81 to take the score to 205 before Sharma fell. Last man Pragyan Ojha then managed to survive till the end as the hosts completed a thrilling one-wicket win. Laxman ended on 73 not out. He was ruled out of the remaining matches of the series due to his injury.

Rahul Dravid - Soccer skills to save his wicket


Rahul Dravid was probably one of the last classical Test match batsmen. His progress into the national side may have been steady and methodical, he has always tried to hold his place with aggressive and calculated performances within and outside the country.

Dravid's immense levels of concentration also came in handy while he fields at slips. He holds the record for the most number of catches taken in the slips.

Dhoni's ODI Record

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, The richest cricketer and the richest sports person in India has performed to some excellent performances.

MSD,MS Dhoni,wallpaper,best images,latest,helicopter shot,chennai super kings,india,wicket keeper,rich sports person,dhoni best performance,dhoni 112m six



Listed are the milestones that he has achieved as a wicket keeper batsman in ODI format. 


On 31 October 2005 Dhoni scored 183* runs of just 145 balls against Sri Lanka in Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur, which is the highest score made by any batsman in the second innings (surpassing Lara's previous record of 153). His Helicopter shot became so famous during this season.

http://crickitter.blogspot.in/2012/07/cricket-dhonis-special-helicopter-shot.html

The innings featured 10 Sixes – the most by an Indian in an innings, and the fifth highest in ODIs.

He broke Adam Gilchrist's record of 172 for the highest score made by a wicket keeper.

The innings set the record for the most number of runs scored in boundaries (120 – 15x4; 10x6) breaking the record held by Saeed Anwar. However this was later broken by Herschelle Gibbs (126 runs in boundaries – 21x4; 7x6) against Australia during his knock of 175.
MSD,MS Dhoni,wallpaper,best images,latest,helicopter shot,chennai super kings,india,wicket keeper,rich sports person,dhoni best performance,dhoni 112m six,dhoni and sachin,dhoni best catch

The score of 183* equalled Ganguly's innings during the 1999 Cricket World Cup as the highest individual score against Sri Lanka.

Among Indian batsmen who have played more than 50 matches, Dhoni has the highest average.

Dhoni's batting average is also the highest amongst wicketkeepers in ODIs.

In June 2007, Dhoni(139*) and Mahela Jayawardene(107) set a new world record for the sixth wicket partnership of 218 runs against Africa XI during the Afro-Asia Cup.

Dhoni passed Shaun Pollock's record for the highest individual score by a number seven batsman in one-day internationals during his unbeaten innings of 139. Incidentally, Pollock record stood for just three days as his score of 130 came in the first match of the 2007 Afro-Asia Cup while Dhoni's century came in the third and final match of the series.

Dhoni also holds the records of the most dismissals in an innings by an Indian wicketkeeper and joint International (with Adam Gilchrist) with 6 dismissals (5 catches and one stumping) against England at Headlingly 2 September 2007.

Watch this great presence of mind by Dhoni to dismiss the best batman of the opponents team.

http://crickitter.blogspot.in/2012/06/ms-dhonis-brilliant-runnot.html

Dhoni holds the Indian record of most dismissals in ODIs. He went past Nayan Mongia's 154 for India on 14 November 2008 when he caught Ian Bell off Zaheer Khan at Madhavrao Scindia Cricket Ground, Rajkot. However including 3 ODIs against Africa XI, his 155th dismissal was TM Dilshan caught off Munaf Patel at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on 24 August 2008.

Dhoni, when he was on four during his innings of 23 against Sri Lanka at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Saturday, completed 4,000 runs in ODIs. Having already effected 165 dismissals (125 catches + 40 stumpings), Dhoni became the sixth wicketkeeper after Adam Gilchrist, Andy Flower, Alec Stewart, Mark Boucher and Kumar Sangakkara to complete the "double" of 4,000 runs and 100 dismissals in the history of ODIs.

Dhoni’s feat of completing the "double" of 4,000 runs and 100 dismissals in only 114 innings is a world record. He is the youngest wicket-keeper batsman to do so (27 years and 208 days).
