WASIM JAFFER CREATES HISTORY

Wassim Jaffer became the highest run getter in the Indian Domestic competition Ranji trophy

A Ranji Trophy game doesn’t attract crowds like an international tie
and an IPL match do. Records are created and broken in India’s premier
domestic tourney but that’s seldom spoken-about or acknowledged.


But, on a sleepy Thursday afternoon at the Wankhede, a small
smattering of spectators witnessed a monumental feat. It was a day Wasim
Jaffer wrote himself into history books. He became the highest
run-getter in Ranji Trophy when he went past his former teammate Amol
Muzumdar’s record of 8237 runs.

Fifty-one is all Jaffer needed to
overhaul Muzumdar. He brought it up with a wristy stroke (off Punjab
leggie Rahul Sharma) that sped to the mid-wicket fence.


Up against
Punjab’s 226, Jaffer came in at the fall of opener Praful Waghela. The
Mumbai skipper was elegant as ever. His favourite on-drive was on view
as he flicked the Punjab seamers with ease.

He went on to score a
chanceless 74th first-class half-century during which he surpassed
Muzumdar. Unfortunately, he missed out on a hundred; he was stumped off
Sharma (for 82) while trying to go for his shots.

I think he has improved a lot in his game and now a days could play fas.Recently he hit 5 sixes in one innings against Ranji Trophy match.I think he should open with Gayle instead of Agarwal.Please Mr.Mallya atleast try to get some old folks.Need someone like him.Don't see his defensiive batting,see his attacking shots.Hope you come back with us.
