Almere (Netherlands): Indian shuttler Ajay Jayaram stunned English top seed Rajiv Ouseph in straight games to enter the men's singles final of the USD 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.
