Jalaj Saxenas brother, Jatin Saxena.Jalaj was selected in Madhya Pradesh domestic cricket team at the age of 19. On 17 December 2005, Jalaj Saxena made his debut in the domestic cricket in a Ranji Trophy match against Kerala.He came to limelight after his performances in 2012-13 Ranji Trophy. He amassed 769 runs at an average of 69.90 in the tournament. Consequently, he came to the notice of selectors and was selected in India A squad for a series against Australia A and New Zealand A. He was the highest wicket-taker in the series against Australia. He considers playing his first match for India A cricket team as his favourite on-field moment until now.

Playing the Railways team, he took 16 wickets for 154 runs in the match and helped steer Madhya Pradesh to the victory on the third day of the test match.Having played for Madhya Pradesh for more than 10 years, he switched to Kerala cricket ahead of 2015-2016 Ranji Trophy. Revealing the reason for his turn to Kerala, Saxena said, I was scoring runs and picking wickets for Madhya Pradesh. But I felt if I move to a smaller team (Kerala) and perform there and take them to elite level then I would be noticed more and get the much-needed recognition. Kerala being a smaller team if they achieve something big with me performing good I would get the recognition, so that was the main reason and I took some risks to get the recognition.Jalaj has won the Lala Amarnath award for being the best all-rounder in domestic cricket three times. He won the awards for his performances in 2014-15, 2015-16, and 2016-17 seasons of Ranji Trophy.
