'Whole team will miss Laxman'

Dhoni pays tribute to Laxman.

India skipper MS Dhoni has said the entire team will miss the retired VVS Laxman.

After remaining apparently out of touch when Laxman tried contacting him before announcing retirement, Dhoni paid rich tribute to the legendary batsman via his Twitter account.

“The whole team will miss u VVS. One of the best human being I have ever met in my life. Spent a lot of time with him while batting and Fielding and the chat would always be about the team. Will miss him whenever the team cuts cake. Personally, I will really miss u Lachu Bhai," Dhoni tweeted.

At his press conference on Saturday, Laxman had raised a few eyebrows when he said he was not able to contact Dhoni on the retirement issue.

“I did try to get in touch with Dhoni but as you know it's very difficult to reach him,” Laxman had said.
