Ambati Rayudu announces international retirement


India middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu on Wednesday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. The decision came after Indian team management replaced injured all-rounder Vijay Shankar with Mayank Agarwal in the World Cup squad.

However, Rayudu himself has not stated any reasons for the decision yet.

Rayudu has played 55 ODIs for India, scoring 1694 runs at an average of 47.05 with three hundreds and 10 half-centuries. In the six T20Is he played he scored 42 runs. Rayudu never got a chance to represent India in Test cricket.

He made his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in 2013 and played his last ODI against Australia in Ranchi this year.

It may be mentioned here that Rayudu had announced his retirement from first-class cricket to focus on one-dayers and T20s.
