Indian batsman Ambati Rayudu is all set to lead Hyderabad in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy. The 33-year old came out of retirement in a month after announcing the same.
Rayudu wasn’t considered by the BCCI as a replacement during the ICC World Cup 2019. Though he was announced as a standby, Mayank Agarwal and Pant were called as a cover for Dhawan and KL Rahul. This led to Rayudu’s retirement announcement.
However, things took a U-Turn when he took back the same last month. He thanked VVS Laxman and the CSK franchise for encouraging him during the ‘rough patch’.
It will be interesting how Rayudu will lead his side and create an impact in the upcoming domestic fixtures. Will he target a spot in the International side by having a good season? Only time will tell.
Vijay Hazare Trophy
The tournament will commence on September 24 and will be played over a period of two weeks. Over 37 teams split across 4 groups will be competing for the championship.
A series of intense battles are on the cards in another chapter of Indian domestic season 2019-20.
