Ambati Rayudu, a middle-order Indian batsman announced his retirement today from all forms of cricket.


All this started when BCCI announced the Indian Cricket Team for World Cup 2019 and Rayudu wasn’t selected for the same. They had put him on hold, in case of any mishappenings. Instead of selecting Rayudu, BCCI selected Vijay Shankar. Despite that, when Shikhar Dhawan got injured, Rayudu was expected to come onboard but instead Rishabh Pant came. The decision of snubbing him off the team more than twice is what pissed him off.

Meanwhile, Vijay Shankar also got injured and Mayank Agarwal was selected snubbing Rayudu once again. This was the letter sent to BCCI by Rayudu:

“I would like to bring to your kind notice that I have come to decision to step away from the sport and retire from all forms and levels of the game. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the BCCI and all the state associations that I have represented which include Hyderabad, Baroda, Andhra and Vidharbha. I also would like to thank the two IPL franchises MI and CSK for their support. It has been a honour and privilege to have represented our country.

I would like to thank the captains I have played under, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma and especially Virat Kohli who always had shown great belief in me throughout my career with the Indian team. It has been a wonderful journey of playing the sport and learning from every up and down it brought up on for the last 25 years at various different levels. Finally I would like to thank my family and all the wellwishers who have been with me throughout this wonderful journey.

Thanking you sir,

Yours sincerely


Ambati Rayudu”
