Ajay Jadeja hit a valuable 37 to lead Haryana to a 62-run victory at the Buchi Babu cricket tournament in Chennai on Friday. Playing against Hyderabad at the Vivekananda College grounds, the 42-year-old Jadeja was also involved in a 75-run partnership for the fourth wicket with opener Sunny Singh that proved vital in Haryana's success.
Jadeja last played a competitive tournament at Hong Kong International Sixes in 2007 after his last Ranji Trophy exploits representing Rajasthan the same year. His last Ranji game came against Bengal in January 2007.
His latest stint prompted media headlines to tag him as the 'comeback man'. The title has probably not gone down well with the former India middle-order batsman.
