After guiding India to a terrific 1-wkt win over Australia, VVS Laxman has termed his magnificent innings as one of his best knocks of his career.
Despite his injury, Laxman came out to bat and hit a superb unbeaten 73 to give India an unlikely victory. Resuming the final day's play at 55/4, India slumped to 124/8 and looked like conceding defeat to the Australians. However, Laxman along with Ishant Sharma played a standout partnership which eventually helped India secure a win.
"It is definitely one of my best knocks. I have always enjoyed batting in such situations and I feel disappointed if I do not perform in such situations. I was able to deliver," he said after helping India take an unassailable 1-0 lead in the two-match series.
"Whatever knock you play, if it helps the team in winning it feels really satisfying," he added.
Laxman lauded tailenders Ishant Sharma and Pragyan Ohja for showing character and for supporting him in completing a memorable win.
"It was a great effort from Ishant at the other end because with an injured leg he played and showed his character. He displayed great temperament. The partnership with Ishant was very important," said Laxman.
"All our tailenders take a lot of pride in their batting and they work really hard on their batting," he said.
