An exceptionally successful batsman in domestic cricket with a triple-century in only his second first-class game , Wasim Jaffer did not quite hit the mark when he made his foray on the international scene.

Much was expected of him on his Test debut in February 2000, but Allan Donald and Shaun Pollock proved too hot to handle.

Even though he showed glimpses of a steely and unflappable temperament, he was dropped immediately.

He continued to pile on the runs in domestic cricket and a string of big scores in 2005-06 season got him a chance to cement his place in the Pakistan tour of 2006.
