Ambati Rayudu announces retirement from international cricket, writes to BCCI

Indian middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu on Wednesday announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket. According to news agency ANI, Rayudu wrote a letter to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to inform about his decision.

The sudden move by the Indian batsman comes after he was overlooked by the BCCI despite two key players - Shikhar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar - suffering injuries during ICC World Cup 2019. Notably, Rayudu featured in the list of reserves for the Indian squad ahead of the World Cup.

Reacting to the development, Chennai Super Kings, for which Rayudu played in the Indian Premier League (IPL), took to microblogging site Twitter to express the franchise's shock. The tweet read, "Rayudon't! Wish it wasn't true."
