Stats to back Jaffer's 'resurrection'

Jaffer is the first Indian opener since Sidhu to score a hundred and a fifty in the same Test, writes Rajneesh Gupta.

In the Nagpur Test, Wasim Jaffer followed his first innings 81 with a maiden Test hundred in the second innings.

Jaffer, thus became only the seventh Indian opener to score a hundred and a fifty in the same Test.

He is the first since Navjot Sidhu (in 1994-95) to do so.

Only three others – Vinoo Mankad, Farokh Engineer and Sunil Gavaskar – have performed this feat against England before the opener.
