Secret to scoring runs? An apple and a shower
When thinking of India’s VVS Laxman one is inclined to remember the silky smooth drives and the classy flick shots to any delivery even slightly on his pads.
Known for being one of the coolest customers around, the former India batsman had played many important knocks – including the brilliant 281 against Australia; an innings where India were made to follow on but ended up winning the Test.
On Laxman’s Birthday, India’s batting Maestro Sachin Tendulkar leaked his secret on twitter while wishing Laxman birthday.
Tendulkar wrote: “Happy b'day, Lax! Shall I spill out the secret behind ur ability to score runs? Taking a shower & eating an apple before going to bat. Oops.”

While thinking about Laxman’s skills not many would have thought that an apple and a shower is the secret to the wristy magician.
Former India opener Virender Sehwag and several other India players wished Laxman a birthday.
