Wasim Jaffer Complete Bio & Career

Wasim Jaffer hails from Mumbai and is among the legends of Indian Domestic Cricket. As of 2016, he is the highest run-scorer in Irani Trophy and Ranji. A stylish right-handed batsman, Jaffer made his first-class debut in the 1996-97 season after piling runs at the school level cricket, one of the top innings includes 400 not out as a 15-year-old kid.
Right from the start of his career, Jaffer was always compared with the legendary Indian batsman Mohd. Azharuddin. After a couple of good first class seasons with Mumbai, Jaffer was included in the struggling Indian batting line-up against the touring South African in 2000. His debut series was not what the selectors or for that matter what he himself expected out of him. His miserable performance led to his drop from the national team. After scoring mountain runs at the domestic circuit, he was again included in the side that toured West Indies in 2002. 
A couple of things went hands in hand with Jaffer, in and out of the national team and scoring runs at will at domestic circuit. He scored two double hundreds at the test level but then came IPL and it changed the way selectors and fans looked at cricket. He was stated as old and too slow and was subsequently dropped from the side and was denied a place in the Indian side since 2008.
Arguably one of the best-seasoned campaigner at the domestic level but couldn’t convert that at the international level.
