VVS Laxman's birthday: Memorable double tons by Indians in Tests
1/7

Undoubtedly Laxman's most epic batting performance where he scored 281 runs in the second innings against Australia at Eden Gardens in 2000/01 season. In the process he also posted the highest individual Test score by an Indian at the time. Being placed in a tough position with a follow-on, Laxman took on the responsibility to take his team to safety. His score came off 452 deliveries and included 44 boundaries. His partnership with Rahul Dravid, who scored 180 runs, took India to a total of 384 and saw India win the match by 171 runs. This also ended Steve Waugh's record-winning streak of 16 Tests.
