New Delhi:

Thirty-three-old Ajay Jadeja, who has been named as Delhi's vice-captain for the new Ranji season, has said that he still hasn't given up hope of playing for India once again. The player still has about a year left for his five-year ban from cricket to finish. With the skipper Virender Sehwag likely to be away on national duty for most of the season, Jadeja will get a chance to lead the Delhi team. Lost glory Jadeja's immediate task will be to help Delhi regain its glory in the Ranji season. It has been seven seasons since they last reached the final of the country's premier domestic tournament and more than 10 seasons since they last won the title in the 1991-92 season. Certainly all the infighting in the Delhi District Cricket Association is not going to help matters for Jadeja and his team. "I don't have anything to say about the administrative problems nor can I do anything about it. My job is to lead the team and I will do that to the best of my ability," Jadeja said. Delhi barely avoided relegation to the plate division last season. Jadeja had come to the rescue by making a double hundred against Baroda, which kept his team in the elite group. While he scored 395 runs from eight innings in the Ranji season, the former India captain will have to do even better this year especially if he hopes to impress the national selectors.
