Wasim Jaffer, Ranji Trophy legend and one of the finest cricketers to play domestic cricket this century, was shockingly accused of favouring Muslim players by Cricket Association of Uttarakhand secretary Mahim Verma.

Anguished by the episode, Dominic Xavier expresses his solidarity with the cricket stalwart.
