Angry middle order batsman Ambati Rayudu had taken retirement from all formats of cricket after he was not selected for the Chennai ODI World Cup . However, he can now be seen playing in a blue jersey once again, as he has made up his mind to reverse his retirement decision. He will prepare for the return to the international team from the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League ( IPL ).
He spoke openly to the Times of India. The batsman currently playing in the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association one-day league, discussing his plan, said, 'I will play for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL and will return to white ball cricket. Getting the best fitness is my biggest priority. He is playing for the Grand Slam team in the league.
He said on his retirement decision, 'I would not say that it was an emotional decision, because I worked very hard for the World Cup in the last 4 years. At such a time you are forced to get frustrated and I thought it was time (to retire). I did not take the decision because I was rejected. When you work for something and you do not get it, then you think of moving ahead of it. ' On his return to cricket, he said, "It is the love of the game that I am thinking about coming back."
