Court directs BCCI to consider
Ajay Jadeja for Ranji matches

April 24, 2003 13:34 IST

In what could help his return to grade cricket, the Delhi high court on Thursday directed the Board of Control for Cricket in India to consider all-rounder Ajay Jadeja for selection in Ranji Trophy matches if found eligible, in view of an arbitrator's ruling in his favour.

Arbitrator Justice A K Mehra, who was appointed by the high court, had given a ruling in Jadeja's favour on the five-year ban imposed on him by the BCCI in the wake of the match-fixing controversy.

The award is to become final and binding on April 27.

A bench, comprising Justice D Bhandari and Justice R S Sodhi, issued the order on a petition moved by the cricketer, seeking direction to the Board of Control for Cricket in India following the arbitrator's award given three months ago.

The court sought a reply from the BCCI within two weeks on Jadeja's petition and the matter will come up for hearing on May 19.
