Ambati Rayudu withdraws retirement to play domestic cricket

Ambati Rayudu withdraws retirement to play domestic cricket

Former India’s international cricketer Ambati Rayudu has decided to pull a U-turn on his retirement and is willing to get back on the field and represent Hyderabad once again. Rayudu had quit all forms of cricket in July but is now keen on participating in domestic cricket once again.

Rayudu had been ignored for selection in the 2019 World Cup with Vijay Shankar being preferred in his spot, which triggered his decision to bow out of international cricket. He said this was hasty judgment from his side as he was disappointed for the supposedly unfair treatment.

He wrote to Prof. Ratnakar Shetty of the BCCI, who is also one of the members of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA), and the top brass of HCA that he is willing to play in all formats of the game. Rayudu has also expressed interest to continue his stint for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League.
