Veteran Indian Batsman Ambati Rayudu's announcement to retire from all forms of cricket has disappointed fans and cricket enthusiasts. As per Netizens, a tweet by Rayudu after the initial World Cup squad was announced was the what culminated in this outcome.
People have expressed their dismay after the Chennai Super Kings star batsman announced his shocking plan to retire. Even so, Netizens are coming up with their own claims about Rayudu's decision. As per the Twitter-verse, a tweet by Rayudu back in April has exacted a heavy price. Rayudu was overlooked when it came to the selection of the squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with chief selector MSK Prasad highlighting that Vijay Shankar, who was picked instead of Rayudu, brings 'three dimensions' - referring to his batting, bowling and fielding abilities.
