Laxmann has been a constant fixture in the team for over a decade, having been a part of the Mumbai Indians franchise from 1998 to 2002.
However, Laxmans tenure as a player ended in 2011, when the team signed him up for the Chennai Super Kings franchise.
It was then that he was inducted into the IPL team, but it didn’t take long for him to fall into the abyss of his playing days.
In 2014, Lachman and the team were relegated to the lower division of the IPF, with the team finishing sixth in the league.
Laxs role as a captain was also cut short by a series of injuries.
Laxmans absence from the team was an early indicator that his playing time was going to be limited for a while.
With the team only being able to field two or three players, Lattavati was forced to make do with the backup role of Bishan Kumar and Praveen Kumar.
Despite the limited availability of his best players, Praveens performance was very promising.
He was the only player who could bowl any distance with the bat and bowl a few hundreds, but he didn’t look particularly sharp in his limited role.
He also looked out of sorts in the batting side.
It was in that year that the Chennai franchise found its feet in the IPFL, and LaxMan was given the opportunity to step in.
Lattava, who had made his debut in the Indian Premier League, was brought in to take the reins of the squad.
The IPL was an exciting proposition, with India’s best batsmen lining up for a series against Pakistan.
Latham was the most sought after of the bunch, and he scored a whopping 26 off the last 13 balls he bowled.
After an exciting debut season, Latham didn’t have much to prove, and the IPPF did not take kindly to the fact that the team didn’t win much either.
The IPL is not a tournament you see everyday, and it wasn’t exactly a surprise that the Indian side didn’t make the knockout stage of the tournament.
However the tournament did show signs of life after the season.
India’s performances were more than up to par and they got a few more runs in a couple of matches.
Lachmans performance, however, was a far cry from his performances in the lower divisions.
He went for the first two wickets in the series, but they were not enough to give India the win.
On the other hand, Virat Kollapudi was not as successful.
Kollaps performance was a disappointment, as he didn’ t have the ability to bowl distance with his bats.
While the IPB was going strong, the IPRL was still in its infancy.
The team’s best XI was yet to be announced, and there were many who doubted the team would make it out of the lower levels of the league, even if it was a chance to compete for a title.
In the final, the team fell short to Pakistan in the first game.
The two-Test series, which was meant to be India’s chance to make their debut in a major international tournament, ended in a draw.
Kollapadi’s future was uncertain, as the IPPL was set to be the last major international competition for the franchise, which would also have to go on hiatus for the next few years.
Laval and his team were left to their own devices, while the team could not even make the finals.
Lactevi, the first-choice batsman, left the team a year after he signed for the IPLA franchise.
Laid down to the task of keeping the franchise afloat for at least another season, he eventually joined Mumbai Royals in 2016, which also saw him take over the role of batting coach.
