New Delhi. The tricks of former stalwarts of Team India are also famous like their batting. Be it Sunil Gavaskar or Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly. The name of our very very special VVS Laxman is also included in this list. It is difficult to say whether this was a trick or a hobby of Laxman, but it was amazing. Actually, VVS Laxman not only used to calm himself with showers of water before his batting, but also used to take a leisurely bath. He would do this in every match.
The incident is related to the Cape Town Test against South Africa. During the match, Sachin Tendulkar was barred from batting at number four as he left the field shortly before the end of the innings. On the other hand, according to habit, VVS Laxman was busy taking bath in the bathroom. When the team came to know about this, efforts started to get Laxman out of the bathroom as soon as possible.
