A year later, in 2012, his record-breaking partnership of 392 runs for the eighth wicket with Amit Mishra caught people's eye and threw a message that he can bat too. His share in the stand was of 211 runs, which was his maiden first-class century also.


In the Ranji season of 2014-15, Jayant took 33 wickets and led the highest wicket-taker list. The selectors did not let his performance go in vain and he was selected for the India A team for a triangular series against South Africa A and Bangladesh A.

Club career
