Wasim Jaffer –


Wasim Jaffer is one of the legends of Indian domestic cricket

born in 16 February 1978 is an Indian Cricketer. He is a right-handed opening batsman and an occasional right arm off-break bowler. He is currently the highest run-scorer in Ranji Trophy,Right from the start of his career, Jaffer did not escape comparisons with legendary (and later tainted) Indian skipper Mohammed Azharuddin. Both were right handers who were in possession of silken wrists and loved working the field on the leg side. After a few prolific seasons in the Ranji Trophy, Jaffer was inducted into the India side against the visiting South Africans in 2000. The Proteas bowling line-up included fear-inducing names like Allan Donald and Jaffer, who had to face their brunt with the new ball, could manage just 46 runs from 4 innings and was dropped

Early years

Following a prolific school career, including an innings of 400 not out as a 15-year-old, he made his entry into the first-class cricket and scored a triple-century in his second match. This innings of 314 not out helped set a series of firsts for Mumbai. It was the first occasion that a batsman had made a triple century for Mumbai away from home and, in putting on 459 runs with his opening partner of Sulakshan Kulkarni the pair became the first from Mumbai to pass 400.
