Articles about Ajay Jadeja
In a career spanning from 1992 to 2000 for India, Ajay Jadeja excelled as a batsman as well as a fielder. Born in a royal family, he made his first-class debut in 1988 for Haryana. Known for the energy he displayed on the field, Jadeja made his international debut against Sri Lanka in 1992 in ODIs. The catch he took to dismiss Allan Border in the 1992 Benson and Hedges World Cup was symbolic of the dynamism Jadeja showcased throughout his career. In the 1996 World Cup quarter-finals against rivals Pakistan, he hit 45 runs off 25 balls, leaving the Pakistani bowling attack bewildered and took India to the semi-finals. In eight years, Jadeja played 196 ODIs but only played 15 Tests. His success in ODIs did not translate into Tests. He was appointed the vice-captain of the team as well. Jadeja was touted to be a leader of the team, but a match-fixing scandal involving him and other players led BCCI to impose a five-year ban on him. Although the ban was overturned, Jadeja never played an international match since 2000.
