‘Ambati Rayudu Can Put Away His 3D Glasses Now’: Iceland Cricket’s Hilarious Offer To The Indian Batsman After Another Snub For The World Cup 2019 Spot Is Winning The Internet

It seems that this year has not been going good for Ambati Rayudu as he was not selected in Team India's 15-member squad for the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The middle-order batsman had an impressive 2018 and it pretty much looked certain that he would cement his place in the Indian side for the much-talked about number four spot. However, earlier this year, Rayudu could make a major impact only once when he scored a blistering match-winning 90 against New Zealand in their own backyard after India were reduced to 18/4. However, a forgettable home series against Australia meant that the veteran batsman was overlooked for the quadrennial event.

Rayudu had also come up with a sarcastic tweet after his exclusion.

The Andhra batsman was once again deprived of a chance of making it to the United Kingdom after all-rounder Vijay Shankar was ruled out of the competition due to a toe injury and Mayank Agarwal was named as his replacement. 

Taking advantage of Rayudu's bad luck, Iceland Cricket came forward to take a dig at the 33-year old by offering him permanent citizenship in their country.
