Ambati Rayudu set to return to the cricket field
It is speculated that Ambati Rayudu is going to play the Chennai ODI tournament to be fit for the IPL. However, he has not said anything about participating in the IPL yet.
He may have retired from international cricket, but Ambati Rayudu will be seen on the cricket field again soon. The batsman will turn out for the TNCA ODI tournament, Parthasarthi Trophy, to be held in Chennai from August 19. According to the magazine Sportstar, Rayudu will play in the tournament to stay in shape. This will be Rayudu's first tournament after retiring.
Rayudu, 33, was disappointed after not being selected in the World Cup squad. He was eyeing the number four spot. He was a part of the Indian team on the tour of Australia and New Zealand just before the World Cup, but Vijay Shankar was given his place in the World Cup. After Vijay Shankar was injured, Rayudu's hopes rose once again, but the team management ignored his claims.
After opener Mayank Agarwal was named in the team after Shankar's injury, an upset Rayudi said goodbye to international cricket. Some former cricketers objected to Rayudu not being selected in the World Cup. However, Chief Selector MSK Prasad described Rayudu's poor fitness as the basis of his non-selection.
It is speculated that Ambati Rayudu is going to play this tournament to be fit for the IPL. However, he has not given any information about participating in the IPL yet. Earlier it was believed that Rayudu would not play IPL either. Incidentally, when Rayudu said goodbye to cricket, the Iceland Cricket Board sent him a proposal to join their national team.
Ambati Rayudu may also play in the T-10 league to be held in Abu Dhabi, which starts on November 15. According to reports, the organisers are in talks with Rayudu and Yuvraj Singh. However, to play in this tournament, all Indian cricketers will have to get the BCCI's permission.
