Vangipurappu Venkata Sai Laxman (born November 1, 1974, in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh), better known as V. V. S. Laxman, is a member of the Indian national cricket team.

He is an express fast batsman. He is noted for his superb timing. His batting style is similar to the more famous Hyderabadi, Mohammed Azharuddin, whom Laxman says is his role-model.

Laxman shot to fame with an extraordinary test innings of 281 against Australia at Eden Gardens in 2001, when under tremendous pressure, which broke Sunil Gavaskar's long standing record of 236*. This remained the highest ever by an Indian till it was eclipsed by Virender Sehwag's triple ton against Pakistan in Multan in March, 2004. The innings also contributed to a record partnership of 376 with Rahul Dravid. Laxman's performance was of enormous consequence: India had been on the brink of an innings defeat but went on to win the test and the series, denying Steve Waugh conquest of the "last frontier". It has become one of the most celebrated tales of Indian cricket. Laxman has since cemented his place both in the test and one day teams. He has continued to perform well against Australia, especially during India's tour of Australia in 2003, in which he hit three ODI and two test centuries. For this reason, Ian Chappell calls him Very Very Special Laxman.

He is married to G.R.Sailaja, in February of 2004.
