The most bankable second innings batsman VVS Laxman has played two matches at Galle and has scored 143 runs with an average of 35.75. Surprisingly the former Indian opening batsman has a better average at Galle compared to the Indian great Sachin Tendulkar. Gambhir has an average of 33 compared to Sachin’s 32.
