VVS Laxman is likely to retire during the New Zealand series, sources have told NDTV.
According to reports, he is likely to announce retirement during the 1st test itself. Incidentally, the first test is to be played at Hyderabad and it will thus be the perfect swansong for the Very Very Special middle-order batsman. This will be just his second test in front of his home crowd.
Since the England tour, VVS Laxman has not performed up to the expected levels. His highest score of 176 came against a touring and struggling West Indies side. In his last 18 test matches he has totaled 1086 runs with an average of 36.20.
