Ambati Rayudu announced his retirement from all kinds of cricket format on Wednesday. The 33-year-old batsman conveyed his decision to the BCCI through an email and left fans heartbroken. In his email, Rayudu wrote, “I would like to bring to your kind notice that I have come to decide to step away from the sport and retire from all forms and levels of the game.”
Rayudu was not happy with the BCCI for choosing new budding players over him to play in the ongoing ICC world cup. Even after two exits due to injuries, BCCI didn’t even consider him for the team and chose Mayank Agarwal over him. Mayank has never played a single ODI in his career yet.
However, the cricket board of Iceland has decided to not let go waste of such a talent and offered Rayudu permanent citizenship in Iceland and play for them.
Replying to Rayudu’s tweet which read, “Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup
..” Iceland cricket wrote, “Agarwal has three professional wickets at 72.33 so at least @RayuduAmbati can put away his 3D glasses now. He will only need normal glasses to read the document we have prepared for him. Come join us Ambati. We love the Rayudu things.”
They also attached an immigration form with the tweet. Now everyone is waiting for Rayudu’s reply.
