Often hailed as 'Australia's nemesis', Laxman aggregated 3,173 Test runs against the Aussies, including two double centuries. Laxman notched up his career's maiden Test ton against the same opponents in the year 1999 at Sydney when he played a knock of 167.

The right-handed middle-order batsman frustrated the Aussie bowlers on numerous occasions. His marathon knock of 281 against Australia at Eden Gardens is still regarded as one the best knocks by an Indian against the Kangaroos.

He has frustrated the Australians so much that he compelled former Australia skipper Steve Waugh telling his fellow teammate Brett Lee, "If you get Dravid, great. If you get Sachin, brilliant. But if you get Laxman, it's a miracle."

Several former and current India cricketers took to their Twitter handles to congratulate the Hyderabadi cricketer on his birthday.
