Indian cricketer Ambati Rayudu missed out on a spot in Team India's World Cup 2019 squad. The 33-year-old was in contention, but to back his chances, there were no consistent performances lately under his belt.
It would have been shocking for the Hyderabad cricketer after not finding his name in the list. But his latest tweet doesn't give us that impression.
Everyone was waiting for the first reaction from Rayudu after the team was announced. No one would have expected him to add a bit of humor in it. But, famous for his anger, Rayudu came up with a funny tweet.
"Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup ????????..", Rayudu's tweet read.
The reaction on the tweet were mostly sympathetic replies from fans. It was unfortunate for him to miss out on an opportunity to play the World Cup. But perhaps he himself was to blame for it.
Rayudu, who averages 47 in ODIs, was totally out of touch against Australia. His only good innings in recent times came against New Zealand in the last ODI when India faced a top order collapse. When the team was 18/4, he scored 90 runs to take the team to a fighting total which the bowlers defended successfully.
Apart from his form, his playing style also got him some criticism. Rayudu generally takes time before finding his flow which the critics say is a sign of lacking intent, something that skipper Virat Kohli looks for in his players.
