Hyderabad: Aug 18, 2012
Chairman of selectors Kris Srikkanth has expressed shock over VVS Laxman’s retirement decision from international cricket on Saturday.
Former Indian captain said he was expecting the Hyderabadi batsman to play the upcoming Test series.
”We were hoping that he would play in New Zealand series. He is going with inner voice we will have to respect his voice.”
He was quoted by Zee News as saying, “It’s a great coincidence that Rahul Dravid and Laxman retired around the same time. They are not going to play in New Zealand series. They have done so many inhuman and superhuman jobs.”
