Indian cricketers Irfan Pathan and Robin Uthappa, who guided India to the trophy at the 2007 World T20, were full of praise for batting great VVS Laxman, who was seen bowling in a bowl-out with other former cricketers in a video.

Watch: India’s and Australia’s former batsman play a bowl-out


During the fourth ODI between India and Australia on Thursday, former cricketers-turned commentators from both the sides played a bowl-out session.

Former India opener Virender Sehwag led the Indian side, consisting Laxman and Zaheer Khan, while the Aussies–Michael Clarke and Dean Jones–were led by former pacer Brett Lee.

Among all, Laxman was the only successful bowler, whose slow delivery found its way easily to the stumps.

Indian pacer Irfan Pathan liked Laxman’s bowling action the most as he wrote on Twitter: “Great action laxman bhai ;)”


Acknowledging the acclaimed speedster, Laxman asked his feedback on his swing. “What about the swing @IrfanPathan,” he tweeted.


Uthappa also joined the thread, saying: “How good was that lachhi bhai!!”


Laxman didn’t shy to commend Uthappa’s delivery that won India the World Cup in 2007. “Not as good as yours in 2007 #T20worldcup,” he replied.
