Wasim Jaffer celebrates his hundred in Irani Cup 2018

The ongoing Irani Cup 2018 between Ranji Champions Vidarbha and Rest of India (ROI) team is on its way to becoming a batting heavy match.

Vidarbha batsmen are pulverizing the ROI team, making them toil hard for the second day of the match as well. After Faiz Fazal (89) and R Sanjay (53) made ROI bowlers toil on a placid pitch, the hero for Vidarbha proved to be Wasim Jaffer, who slammed a brilliant double century and is still going strong.

He is well supported by G Satish, who has also scored a century. Jaffer hasn’t put a foot wrong during his innings, after he started the second day at 113* (his 53rd FC century). Rest of India's strong five-man attack, with quicks Navdeep Saini and Siddarth Kaul and three spinners in R Ashwin, Shahbaz Nadeem and Jayant has been unable to break through the defense of Jaffer.

Twitter was in awe of the consistency and patience shown by a true giant of Indian domestic cricket, Wasim Jaffer.

Here are some tweets from the cricket fraternity applauding a brilliant innings by Jaffer:
