India batsman Ambati Rayudu has made a volte-face on his decision to retire and made himself available for Hyderbabd in domestic cricket, a senior official told on Friday.
Almost two months after announcing his retirement from all forms of cricket, batsman Ambati Rayudu has said that the decision was an "emotional one" and that he wants to play in all formats again. In a letter to Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA), Rayudu said he has enough cricket left in him and is looking forward to a wonderful season ahead.
Rayudu was not picked in India’s squad for the 50-over World Cup in England after being tipped as the team’s top choice for a middle-order batting spot. He was later neglected by the selectors even Dhawan and Vijay Shankar were injured in the middle of the tournament where Pant and Mayank Agarwal called up as replacements. That broke Rayudu and made him call the retirement.
He has now informed the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) of his availability. Rayudu will be available to play the full season for Hyderabad and it was a “good” news for the team, Ratnakar Shetty, a member of HCA added.
