Video: VVS Laxman scores 109 against Australia at SCG in 2008
Video highlights of Indian cricketer VVS Laxman's 109 against favourite rivals Australia â€” his 12th century in Test cricket â€” at the Sydney Cricket Ground on January 3, 2008.
According to a report by the Herald Sun, reprising his role as Australia's nemesis, Laxman resumed his love affair with Sydney to score 109 - his third hundred in as many Tests in the city - and help a defiant India battle its way back into the match.
On a day where the class of the tourists' batting was in contrast to the mediocre fielding of Australia, Laxman's century and 149-run partnership with Rahul Dravid (53) saw India post 3-216 at stumps in reply to Australia's 463.
The sublime knock from Laxman continued a remarkable sequence of runs plundered against the world's No. 1 side, and in particular, at the SCG.
The right-hander added the century to others on each of his tours to Australia, having scored 167 in 2000 and a memorable 178 in 2004.
