Mumbai: Feb 1, 2013 

Mumbai‘s senior opening batsman Wasim Jaffer on Friday lost his father who passed away at the Lilavati Hospital in suburban Bandra following a brief illness.

Former Test opener, Jaffer was recently declared the Man of the Match for scoring a century in the Ranji Trophy final against Saurashtra, which Mumbai won for the 40th time by an innings inside three days.
