Indian shuttler Ajay Jayaram stunned English top seed Rajiv Ouseph in straight games to enter the men's singles final of the $50,000 Dutch Open Grand Prix here.

The 13th seeded Mumbaikar needed only 26 minutes to move past Ouseph 11-8, 11-7, 11-5 in their first-ever clash, at the Topsportcentrum Almere on Saturday.

In the summit clash, Jayaram, who returned to the circuit after seven-month injury layoff in August, will take on Indonesia's Ihsan Maulana Mustofa.

The World No.66 Indian has a very good chance of grabbing the title as Mustofa is ranked way below at No.290.
