Ayo Mene Ejegi (born 7 December 1990) is a Nigerian cricketer.[1]

Mene Ejegi started his cricket career at the age of 15. It took him only two years to cut into the Nigeria national cricket team camp (under 17) in Nigeria, 2007.

Ayo's unique fast out swing and amazing fielding skills made him be the only one picked from the entire south-south region in Nigeria.

In 2009 Ayo played for the Delta state team at the Nigerian National Sports Festival where he had an amazing performance coming third on the bowling record with 9 wickets in 4 games, which also propelled further attention to himself.

Ayo's performance made him a pick for the National U19 (under 19) as he also displayed a reliable use of the bat raking 32 runs in a trial match amongst the U19 lads to save his team from defeat.

In 2012 Ayo was appointed as the captain of Delta state and the team became runners up in the National Sports Festival ODI championship, setting till today the ODI national bowling record of 22 wickets in 6 matches and it's also interesting to note that it is the first medal Delta state recorded in Cricket.

Ayo has won several medals in university cricket and was one of 2 players invited by the Minster cricket club in the UK, playing in Kent Cricket League but was unable to participate.

In May 2016 Ayo was representing Nigeria in Jersey at ICC World Cricket League Division Five.

With the fastest bowling[2][circular reference] recorded ball of 137km/h, he has also seen to raise his standard with the bat, coming in from 4 - 6 and sometimes dared to open the batting order with a highest 77 runs. [3]

In April 2017, Mene Ejegi was part of Nigeria's squad for ICC World Cricket League Africa Region Qualifiers 2017 ICC World Cricket League Africa Region Qualifiers tournament.[4]
