Wasim Jaffer (born February 16, 1978 in Bombay - now Mumbai) is an Indian cricketer. He is a right-handed opening batsman and an occasional right arm off-break bowler.

Early years

Following a prolific school career, during which he scored 400 not out in one innings as a 15 year old, he made his entry into the first class cricket scoring a triple century in his second match. His innings of 314 not out helped set a series of firsts for Mumbai. It was the first occasion that a batsman had made a triple century for Mumbai away from home and by putting on 459 runs with his opening partner Sulakshan Kulkarni the pair became the first from Mumbai to pass 400.

International career

An opening batsman, with the style of Mohammed Azharuddin, much was expected of Jaffer as he entered Test cricket for the first time in a home series against South Africa in 2000. An experienced bowling duo in Shaun Pollock and Allan Donald would however prove too difficult for Jaffer to cope with, and he managed just 46 runs from his four innings. He would not start another international match for some time, eventually returning in May 2002 for a tour of the West Indies. Jaffer had a respectable series, making 51 in Bridgetown and 86 at Antigua. He had done enough to be included in the Indian squad for their tour of England that coming summer but despite a half century at Lord's he struggled in his other innings and was dropped after two Tests.
