One of the most legendary players in the Indian cricket, Wasim Jaffer hung his boots on Saturday. Jaffer announced his retirement in a statement.

The right-handed batsman has been one of the finest players in the Indian domestic circuit scoring heaps of runs. He became the first-ever batsman to score more than 12000 runs in the Ranji Trophy tournament while also played for India in 31 Tests and a couple of ODIs.

In his 31 Test appearances, Jaffer scored 1944 runs at an average of 34.10 including a doubleton.

While Jaffer played little for the Indian team, he was a huge name at the domestic level. In 260 First-Class matches, Jaffer scored a total of 19410 runs, 57 hundreds and 91 fifties at an average of over 50.

He was a part of the Mumbai Ranji for many years only to make a shift to Vidarbha later in his career leading them to a couple of titles on the trot.
