New Delhi:The Delhi High Court today restored the petition of former Indian middle order batsman Ajay Jadeja seeking permission to play international cricket hours after dismissing it.

In the forenoon, a Bench comprising Justice Vijendra Jain and Justice Anil Kumar dismissed Jadeja's appeal as none appeared on behalf of the cricketer when the petition was taken up for hearing.

However, Jadeja's counsel Vineet Malhotra explained his absence before the Bench in the afternoon saying he was busy arguing a matter before another Bench of the High Court.

The Court then restored the appeal and notified it for hearing on December 14.

Jadeja had filed the appeal challenging an order of the single Judge of the High Court disallowing him to play any competitive cricket.

However, last year on his plea, a Division Bench of the High Court had allowed him to play domestic cricket only.
