Wasim Bhai or Dr J?

by Gaurav Sethi

Compare Jaffer in a local game, with one of those internationals that he hasn’t seen in a while.

Dig out the scores, you will notice, in one he makes crores, in the other, it’s a measured run drip the nurse has to change every now and then. In the locals, he’s Dr Wasim Jaffer, respected, spreading runs and cheer in the villages of India. Got a problem, call Dr Jaffer. No runs, wicket fall, call Dr J.

Today, vs. South Zone, he was on call again. His treatment, a straight six with the precision of a surgeon.

If it weren’t for the pharmacy of runs dished out by Sehwag and Gambhir, Dr J would be on call again.

And that is nearly as scary as needles.
