Ambati Rayudu retires from International Cricket

Ambati Rayudu announces international retirement after World Cup 2019.

Ambati Rayudu was not selected in India’s 15-member squad for the World Cup 2019 and was pushed aside twice while Rishabh Pant and Mayank Agarwal were sent to England as replacements for the injured Shikhar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar.

India batsman Ambati Rayudu on Wednesday proclaimed his retirement from international cricket with quick effect. Rayudu will remain to play in the Indian Premier League. Rayudu had already retired from first-class.

Rayudu was not incorporated into India’s original 15-member squad for the World Cup 2019 and all-rounder Vijay Shankar was chosen over him. Chief selector MSK Prasad have reasoned that Shankar’s 3-dimensional qualities prepared them pick him over Rayudu, who wasn’t way too pleased with the decision.

However the injuries to opener Shikhar Dhawan and Shankar left the door open for the selectors to choose Rayudu as a likely replacement. Rayudu was even with the standbys list including Rishabh Pant for the World Cup.

The BCCI selectors then again, chose to direct Rishabh Pant instead of Dhawan (thumb fracture) and Mayank Agarwal for Shankar, who hurt his toe during practice session. These might have been the reasons behind Rayudu’s instantaneous retirement, although the cricketer himself hasn’t stated any reasons behind the decision yet.

Rayudu have played 55 ODIs for India, scoring 1694 runs at on an average 47.05 with three centuries and 10 half-centuries. He as well featured in 6 T20 internationals and made 42 run in them.

Oddly enough, the World Cup snubs presented Iceland Cricket the chance to troll Rayudu when they provided him lasting residency after Mayank Agarwal was referred to Vijay Shankar’s official substitution in the Indian squad on Monday.
