Veteran Indian batsman Ambati Rayudu has decided to move on as he announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. The middle-order batsman has represented India in 55 One Day Internationals and six T20Is.
The 33-year-old was overlooked by the selectors when Team India's 15-member World Cup squad was announced earlier this year. He was once again overlooked when all-rounder Vijay Shankar was ruled out of the tournament due to a toe injury and Mayank Agarwal was named as a replacement.
After hearing about the Andhra batsman's shocking retirement, netizens came forward and lashed out at the Board of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI) for underappreciating Rayudu's contributions and for not giving him that the respect that he deserved.
