Varanasi:Former Samata Party leader and mother-in-law of former Test player Ajay Jadeja, Jaya Jaitley feels the chances of the Rajasthan captain making a comeback to the national squad were remote.

However, the prospects of coaching a state team or even the 'Men in Blue' in future were still alive, she added.

''He has crossed 30 and keeping in mind present Indian cricket scene, where youngsters are breaking into the team with every new series, it is hard to imagine Ajay making a comeback in Team India,'' the former Samata Party president told.

''Ajay is doing a great job as an expert commentator for a news channel. If he keeps up his good work as captain of the Rajasthan cricket team, he stands good chance of even becoming coach of the future Indian side,'' maintained Jaya.

Admitting that her Bharatnatyam exponent daughter Aditi was still to become a fullsome cricket fan, she said Aman -- Ajay and Aditi's son -- was a die-hard cricket aficionado, who does not emulate his all-rounder father, but dreams to follow the path of explosive stumper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Jaya also reiterated that Ajay, who saw his cricketing career spoilt due to the match-fixing controversy was a ''victim of conspiracy'' of the Indian cricketing establishment.
