VVS Laxman Retires From International Cricket

I would like to announce my retirement from international cricket with immediate effect. I have always kept my country's success and need ahead of my personal aspirations. And while I would love contributing to the team's success, especially against England and Australia, I think this is the right time to give the youngsters a chance in home conditions ahead of international assignments.

It was a tough decision to take, I have always listened to my inner conscience. I have always done that right through my career. There was a lot of debate in the last four days. I felt this is the right time to move on.

Till last night I was unable to make up my mind, but in the end I listened to my inner voice and arrived at my decision to retire. I informed the chairman of selectors this morning that I would not continue playing for India. I also spoke to many of my team-mates, they were surprised that I was retiring before the series. It was all very emotional.

The epic 281 at Eden:

At his sublime best:

Just for some some cheap laughs:

If VVS batted left-handed:

A league of extraordinary gentlemen:

That flicked cover drive:
