Category: Misc. VVS's omission from the cricket team.

A quiz question - Link the three nos. 309, 233, and 281 with Indian cricket? An easy one. Try to answer the other two.

A note: VVS Laxman's 281 v. Australia in that famous, unforgettable March 2001 Kolkata test match has been adjudged the best test innings by an Indian, by the Wisden Cricket Monthly, and to think about it, he is one player who is always on trial. Why is VVS Laxman always on trial? He is the kind of a player who doesn't need practice. He has to go to the batting crease and the bat becomes a magic wand caressing the ball to the boundary. Talent needs to be given time to fail. He is an enigmatic player, but when he plays others can only dream of batting like him.
Selectors, VVS should always be in the Indian cricket team. One never knows when a magical innings of Laxman will brighten the cricket world.
