The cricketing career of the birthday boy has been a roller coaster ride, he was backed by the Indian skipper to cement his place in the team. But his poor show with the bat on a couple of tours ahead of World Cup 2019 forced the selectors to leave him out of the squad because of which he was snubbed from the team for showpiece event with all-rounder Vijay Shankar taking his place.
After being left out of the squad, he tweeted his displeasure at not being selected for the tournament and said that he’d be watching the games with 3D glasses. A cold war between Indian selectors and Rayudu came out when he was not added to the squad as an injury replacement despite being in the standbys.
