Laxman returns to haunt Australia

January 22, 2008

Like a recurring bad dream, VVS Laxman has come back to haunt the all-conquering Australia cricket side.

The wristy Hyderabad batsman stroked a crucial second-innings 79 to set up India for their 72-run victory in the third Test in Perth and deny the Australians a world-record 17th consecutive win.

India were also the last team to defeat Australia at home, winning in Adelaide in December 2003, when Laxman (148) shared a 303-run stand with Rahul Dravid (233).
