Cricketing fraternity sympathises with Ambati Rayudu after his retirement

Indian middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu has announced his retirement from the worldwide cricketer days after he was once again neglected to replace Vijay Shankar in the World Cup competition. Rayudu was first snubbed when Rishabh Pant was named as a replacement for injured Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan in the initial stages of the quadrennial event.

Indian cricketer Ambati Rayudu announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Wednesday, according to multiple media reports. "We love the Rayudu things", tweeted Iceland Cricket. Delighted for him & it is a good choice.

The BCCI's decision to not consider Rayudu and instead prefer Agrawal to replace Shankar had left many puzzled.

Rayudu reacted on his omission with a sarcastic tweet that he would watch the World Cup wearing 3D glasses, in an obvious reference to chief selector MSK Prasad's defence of Vijay Shankar's selection.

Citing Section 6103 (f), the committee said it could request any tax information without disclosing why it wants the information. Neal could also have the option of requesting Trump's state tax returns from the New York Department of Taxation and Finance.


Iceland Cricket also tweeted out the application form for permanent residency in Iceland if the Indian batter meant to take them up on their offer. While he started his IPL career with Mumbai Indians, the batsman went on to play for Chennai Super Kings. He sent a letter to the BCCI stating them about his decision to retire from the game.

"Can understand the pain and anguish Ambati Rayudu may be feeling after the World Cup snub even after performing well". Hyderabad Cricket Association confirmed his retirement.

In the global arena playing for India in the ODIs, Rayudu has played 55 matches scoring 1694 runs hitting 3 centuries and 10 half centuries with the highest score of 124. In the six T20Is he played, the middle-order batsman scored 42 runs. He also thanked his fans, family and friends in his goodbye note.

Indian selectors came under the scanner for ignoring Rayudu for India's 15-man World Cup squad.
