Wasim Jaffer‘s success story in domestic cricket continued. The 40-year old notched up his 53rd century and broke plethora of records en route on Day 1 of Irani Cup 2018. Jaffer was unbeaten on 113, ending Day 1 at 289 for 2. Jaffer was aggressive since the beginning of the match, especially after the dismissal of skipper Faiz Fazal, who scored a patient 190-ball 89.

Jaffer not only got a big score in the Irani Cup but also surpassed Gundappa Viswanath. When Jaffer went past the 50-run mark, he became only the second player after Viswanath to score six consecutive half-centuries in Irani Cup. Jaffer holds 595 runs from only 9 matches in this season for Vidarbha.

Jaffer’s innings was also lauded by VVS Laxman.

Jaffer is currently racing to the 150-run mark along with his partner Ganish Satish who has already brought up his fifty against the Rest of India (ROI) side.
