Playing in Ranji semi final match, it was Wasim Jaffer who stole the limelight and put Mumbai team in control of the match as he smashed a brilliant 301(459 balls, 27 x 4s). The skipper played awesome innings and the whole day witnessed great partnership between Jaffer and Sachin Tendulkar who also played valiantly. Sachin scored 122 (5 x 6s, 9 x 4s) and then retired due to fever.
Jaffer played well under the flat pitch and till the end of the days play, Mumbai were 637 for six in the first innings at the close of second day’s play. This was Jaffer’s second triple ton that too against the same team-Saurastra. Truly, a class player !
