Former Indian batting legend VVS Laxman has heaped praise on former Indian all-rounder, Yuvraj Singh and said that he fulfilled the dream of more than a billion people. VVS Laxman has been one of India’s most respected cricketers and has certainly won the hearts of many Indians through his performance over the years.

VVS Laxman, himself,  was a consistent run-getter in Test cricket while a more than capable white-ball batsman. His match-saving knock against Australia alongside Rahul Dravid in the 2001 Kolkata Test at Eden Gardens is still considered to be one of the finest Test knocks by an Indian batsman in the format.
