Wasim Jaffer: A Brief Biography

Wasim Jaffer Biography


Wasim Jaffer is an Indian cricketer, who was born on 16 February 1978 in Mumbai, Maharashtra. He is a right-handed batsman and an intermittent right-arm off break bowler. With characteristics and style similar to legendary Mohammad Azharuddin, Jaffer is the top scorer in India’s domestic cricket tournament, Ranji Trophy.


Background


From school level cricket, Jaffer had already marked his name in the game, scoring 400 not out as a 15-year old. He scored a 314 not out knock in another match and helped out Mumbai to win.


This was the first time a batsman had crossed the triple three-digit mark. With a partnership of 459 runs, Jaffer and Sulakshan Kulkarni were the first ever opening pair to have passed 400 mark together.


Debut


Wasim Jaffer made his Test debut in February 2000 against South Africa. With a good repute in domestic cricket, the expectation bar was set high for Jaffer. However, things didn't go as planned against best in the class bowlers like Shaun Pollock and Allan Donald.


Jaffer’s ODI debut came in November 2006, but he was yet again unproductive with his bat.


Rise to Glory


After his low scoring performance against South Africa in 2000, Jaffer was recalled after 2 years in May. He had a decent knock against the West Indies side, scoring a 51 in Bridgetown and 86 in Antigua.


In March 2006, Jaffer scored his maiden test century against England. After a couple of months, Wasim blasted a double century, marking his opening spot paired with Virendra Sehwag for the coming tests.


Against Pakistan in 2007, Jaffer scored an emphatic 202 in the first innings of the second test at Eden Garden, Kolkata.


Jaffer left Mumbai and moved to Vidarbha in June of 2015. Following a successful season, he won the 2017-18 Ranji trophy.


Club Career


Jaffer has represented Scholes CC in the Huddersfield Drakes League England for multiple seasons. In 2010, Jaffer played from Skelmanthorpe Cricket Club, breaking the league record of total runs scored in a season. Himley CC signed Jaffer in 2011.


In 2013, Jaffer played for Ainsdale CC in the LDCC league. Jaffer scored multiple centuries and had an outstanding strike rate of 97.93 and top score of 153 not out. Unfortunately, Jaffer had to discontinue after half season due to a knee injury and returned back to India.


Retirement


Jaffer’s last test match came in April 2008 against South Africa. With his performance not up to his standards, scoring just 15 runs in the first innings and 10 off 11 balls in the second, he was not selected in the team since then.


With growing age, Jaffer’s inclusion in the senior team is slim. But he continues to dominate the grounds of Ranji with his bat.
