Cricketing fraternity reacts to Ambati Rayudu’s retirement after World Cup 2019 snub

Posted On

After being ignored for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Ambati Rayudu announced his retirement from all forms of cricket without specifying his reasons for calling it quits in his email to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).


Rayudu played 55 ODIs for India. In the 50 innings where he batted, he scored 1,694 runs at an average of 47.05. The 33-year-old even featured in 6 T20I games. He retired from all forms of the game after spending 25 years on the field.

The cricketing fraternity sympathized with the former India middle-order batsman, who was overlooked by the selectors, which picked Mayank Agarwal as a replacement player for injured Vijay Shankar in India’s 15-man World Cup squad.
