Ambati Rayudu Cricket Career

  • Domestic Career

Here is all about Ambati Rayudu’s Domestic Career.

Early Promise

Rayudu started his career playing for the Hyderabad youth teams in the late 90s, playing at the Under-16 and Under-19 levels. He appeared for India Under-15s in the ACC Under-15 Trophy in 2000, finishing as the tournament’s leading run-scorer and match-winner in the final against Pakistan. Prolific run scoring at age group levels led to his being elevated to the Hyderabad senior team. He made his first-class debut for Hyderabad in January 2002, at the age of 16, during the 2001-02 Ranji Trophy. Batting at 4, he scored 33 in that match, his only first-class appearance of the season. Later that year, he was named captain of India Under-17 and also made appearances for India Under-19.

Rayudu captained the Indian team at the 2004 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh where India finished as semi-finalists. He averaged 24.83 with the bat in the tournament and was banned from the semi-final against Pakistan for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct in the previous match. He notched an unbeaten century for India A against Kenya in Nairobi later that year. He averaged just 11.93 in 7 matches in the 2004-05 Ranji Trophy but scored 3 fifty in 4 matches in the one-day Ranji Trophy.

Decline, ICL and return

Due to differences with then Hyderabad manager Rajesh Yadav, Rayudu switched to Andhra for the 2005-06 season. He averaged 35 in the Ranji Trophy that season and made headlines when he was attacked by Hyderabad player Arjun Yadav with stumps after Yadav was sent off during the Andhra-Hyderabad match. Rayudu returned to Hyderabad the following season after Vivek Jaisimha took over as the team’s manager. Rayudu was only able to play three of Ranji’s matches that season as he suffered a knee injury that sidelined him. In one of the three games he scored 62 and 110 not out, against Rajasthan. Returning from injury, he averaged 21 in the 2006-07 Ranji One-Day Trophy.

Ahead of the 2010–11 season, Rayudu decided to play for Baroda after Hyderabad were relegated to the Ranji Trophy Plate Division, with Hyderabad manager Venkatapathy Raju saying it was “done in poor taste”. In that season’s Ranji Trophy, Rayudu finished as Baroda’s run leader with 566 runs in 9 matches at an average of 56.60, including two hundred and three unbeaten half-centuries, as the team finished runners-up. In the 2011-12 Ranji Trophy, he averaged 48.75 with two centuries. He was then called up to the India A team on their tour of New Zealand and scored 105 and 26 not against New Zealand A at Lincoln. He was also included in the probable 30 for the 2012 ICC World Twenty20, but failed to make the final 15-man squad.

He is playing for Chennai Super Kings in IPL in 2023.

  • International Career

Here is all about Ambati Rayudu’s International Career.

Indian team

In December 2012, the newly formed selection panel, chaired by Sandeep Patil, who was also previously associated with the ICL, chose Rayudu as the replacement player for the injured Manoj Tiwary for the T20I series against England. However, Rayudu did not appear in the eleven of the game in either of the two matches. In the 2012–13 Ranji Trophy season, Rayudu scored 666 runs at an average of 60.54 1750. He played for Rest of India in the 2013 Irani Cup against Mumbai and scored 51 and 156. He was the top scorer in the 2012-13 Deodhar Trophy final where his innings of 78 helped West Zone chase the target of 290 against North Zone.

During the West Indies tri-series in July 2013, Rayudu was named as the replacement for Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who was ruled out of the series due to injury, but did not appear in any of the matches. Rayudu was then selected in a second Indian squad for the Zimbabwe tour later that month. He made his international debut in the first ODI of the series, on 24 July 2013, and was instrumental in setting up an Indian victory. He made 63* and in partnership with his captain, Virat Kohli, who made a century, helped India win. He became the 12th Indian batsman to score a half-century on his ODI debut.

Rayudu averaged 19.33 in the tri-series against Australia and England and was selected in India’s 15-man squad for the 2015 Cricket World Cup which reached the semi-final but did not appear in any of the tournament’s matches. He played two ODIs on the tour of Bangladesh in June 2015 and averaged 22. On the subsequent tour of Zimbabwe, Rayudu scored an unbeaten 124 in the first ODI at Harare and won the man of the match award. He scored 41 in the next match before suffering an injury that ruled him out of the tour. India went on to sweep the series 3-0 and Rayudu was declared man of the series.

In the 2022 IPL, Rayudu was again bought by Chennai Super Kings for ₹6.75 crores after a four-year spell with them.
