Ambati Rayudu’s exclusion was one of the major talking points following India’s World Cup 2019 team announcement on Monday. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) right-hander himself appeared to take a dig at the 2019 World Cup selection with a cryptic tweet. Rayudu’s statement created a lot of buzz on Twitter with left-arm off-spinner Pragyan Ojha also weighing in on the matter. Pragyan Ojha came up with an explosive tweet, relating to Ambati Rayudu’s “situation” and pointing to a conspiracy against “Hyderabadi cricketers”.
“Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup,” Rayudu had tweeted.
Citing his own struggle, Ojha said he had been a similar situation, going on to claim bias against Hyderabadi cricketers.
Rayudu has featured in in 55 One-day Internationals (ODIs), scoring 1,694 runs at an average of 47.05. The 33-year-old has three centuries and 10 half-centuries to his name.
Rayudu though, along with Rishabh Pant, have been put on the standby list for the World Cup.
