Vangipurapu Venkata Sai Laxman, commonly known as VVS Laxman, is a former Indian cricketer. Laxman represents Hyderabad in domestic cricket and has played for Lancashire in English county cricket. He was the captain of the Deccan Chargers during the Indian Premier League in its first year, before being replaced by Adam Gilchrist for the next year. In 2011, Laxman was awarded the Padma Shri award, India's fourth highest civilian award. Laxman bats right-handed and occasionally bowls off-spin. He is noted for his superb timing and his remarkable ability to play 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
