VVS Laxman’s masterly innings of 281😍 against Australia at the Eden Gardens in 2001 has been rated as the greatest Test performance 👏 of the last 50 years by fellow players, cricket journalists📝 and commentators🎙 in a poll. Laxman came up with this sensational knock after India were trailing by 274 runs after the first innings. It turned out be a series defining💪 innings as India went on to equalise and then clinch the series🏆 2-1 at Chennai. Shane Warne recalls, “I was bowling in the footmarks and Laxman was hitting the same ball through cover or whipping it through midwicket. It was so hard to bowl then😨.” Ponting also made a tribute to Laxman, "We bowled for near enough to two days at him without even looking like getting him out"🙌.
