Mohali:VVS Laxman, the hero of India's gripping first Test win in Mohali, has reached Bangalore after a brief halt in his hometown of Hyderabad, but didn't train with the team two days before the Bangalore Test. The rest of the team had a long nets session at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Laxman had to fight back spasms in that match-winning 73, and is still recovering from the injury. He came in to bat at No. 10 in the first innings, and didn't play any further part in the game until the end of day four. During the course of the game, he had to take three painkiller injections and tablets during every break on the final day.
