There are some things which just brighten up your day and gives you a good feeling. This is one such thing! India’s highest run-scorer in first-class cricket Wasim Jaffer, who played a crucial role in Vidarbha’s historic win against Delhi in Ranji Trophy some days back, in an interview with a newspaper, has revealed that he played this Ranji season for Team Vidarbha for free!

Speaking to Hindustan Times, Jaffer revealed, “I had a contract with them last season where I was to be paid in three instalments ? October, January and March. They wanted me to play a big part in their Ranji Trophy campaign. It didn’t happen due to injury but they never hesitated to pay me. In October I was unavailable due to injury so they didn’t pay, which was fair.

I wanted to return the favour and called them to say that I would play for free this season. It worked out well for both sides.
