CRICKET- Indian middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu has announced retirement from all forms of cricket, as per a Sportstar report.
Rayudu was not included in India’s World Cup squad and was subsequently snubbed when India made two changes to their squad after injuries to Shikhar Dhawan and Shankar. In their place, Rishabh Pant and Mayank Aggarwal have been included in squad.
“This is to inform that Ambati Rayudu, Hyderabad captain and member of the India ODI team, has decided to retire from longer version of the game including Ranji Trophy (multi day) to focus on limited overs cricket and T20 cricket,” Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) had stated, reports Sportstar.
Rayudu has reportedly written to BCCI informing them about his decision to retire.
