Jalaj Saxena (Indian Cricketer) Girlfriend, Weight, Height, Age, Records and More

By Kashif Sheikh

He has been recognised as India’s best all-rounder for three consecutive seasons, he holds the record for bowling the second best match figures in Ranji history, he is the only Indian to score a century and pick up 8 wickets in the same innings twice, he is the man ignored by the national selectors for eleven long years now, he is the ever so calm all-rounder from Madhya Pradesh, Jalaj Saxena. He is 32 now, and is still waiting to wear the blue jersey and step out on the green turf representing his country as anxiously as he did when he was 16. He hasn’t received a call up from the national side, but a selection in the IPL, as he says, is a step that takes him closer to his dreams. At 41, Pravin Tambe made his debut in the IPL, and found himself playing for his Ranji side soon after that. Jalaj Saxena did make his IPL debut a couple of seasons ago, but he is yet to find even one opportunity to showcase his talent. This season, he has got all the chances of making the world a fan of his match-winning abilities.
