Jaffer breaks Ranji record, puts Mumbai in good position

Mumbai, Jan 27 (IANS) Wasim Jaffer Sunday broke the record of maximum centuries in Ranji Trophy and helped his team gain a healthy 139-run lead against Saurashtra in the final at the Wankhede Stadium here.

Mumbai, Jan 27 — Wasim Jaffer Sunday broke the record of maximum centuries in Ranji Trophy and helped his team gain a healthy 139-run lead against Saurashtra in the final at the Wankhede Stadium here.

Jaffer (132) struck his 32rd hundred of the premier domestic event as Mumbai ended day two at 287 for six after dismissing Saurashtra for 148 Saturday. The experienced opener surpassed Ajay Sharma's tally of 31 centuries to achieve the feat.

The hosts, resuming at 19 for no loss, started the day well with Jaffer and Kaustubh Pawar (21) sharing 75 runs for the first wicket.

Aditya Tare's (3) dismissal in the 41st over brought Sachin Tendulkar at the crease. The little master could not contribute much to the team's cause after getting run out for 22.

Abhishek Nayar (26) then stitched a brief partnership with Jaffer before falling to Kamlesh Makvana.

Jaffer finally departed, adjudged leg before wicket off left-arm spinner Dharmendrasinh Jadeja.

Hiken Shah (41) was batting alongside Dhawal Kulkarni (18) at close of play.
