The Indian cricketer Ambati Rayudu has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, including IPL.
Rayudu who made his international debut in 2013 has been in and out of the team for years now and was overlooked for the World Cup as Vijay Shankar was selected ahead of him. Now, after being overlooked twice because Mayank Agarwal made it to the squad ahead of him, dejected Rayudu called it a day, according to the BCCI sources.
Rayudu has played in 55 ODIs and scored 1694 runs with three centuries and 10 half-centuries at an average of 47.05. In the six T20Is he played, the middle-order batsman scored 42 runs. Rayudu never got a chance to represent India in Test cricket.
Earlier, Rayudu retired from the longer format of the game in order to concentrate more on the shorter format.
He was banned by the BCCI earlier for joining the rebel Indian Cricket League and then made his comeback, played for Baroda where he got picked for the international team.
Rayudu is yet to make an official announcement.
