Recalling that moment, Laxman, who is the Chief Cricket mentor of CricketCountry said, “It was one of those moment when I lost my control over my emotions. It was a fantastic Test match. It was so close and I didn’t want to lose the game from that position. It was the fourth ball of the over. Hifenhaus [Ben] was bowling and I wanted to take strike in the next over because Mitchell Johnson was from the other end and he was bowling really well. Suresh Raina was running for me and there was some agitation between Suresh Rain and Ojha and Ojha ultimately didn’t take that run. In the hit of the moment I lost my control and started shouting. I don’t want to share the exact words, I have used on that particular afternoon. But at the end Ojha held his nerve and it was great to win that game.” Laxman also revealed that he immediately after that over apolosied to Ojha.
