Indian former cricket Team opener Gautam Gambhir blasts out on the selectors and blames them for the Ambati Rayudu’s sudden retirement plan.
Rayudu was ignored while picking up for injured Shikar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar in the ongoing World cup and this was the reason which prompted him for retirement from the International Cricket. Gambhir expressed his views on Rayudu’s retirement before the match between England and New Zealand.
“According to me, the selectors have been a complete disappointment this World Cup. Rayudu’s retirement decision is because of them and their decision-making skills are to be blamed for this. Five selectors combined would not have made the runs Rayudu has in his career. I feel extremely sad about this retirement. Rishabh Pant and Mayank Agarwal got selected amidst the World Cup injuries, and anyone in Rayudu’s place would have felt equally bad.” – Gambhir said.
He said that the Rayudu’s retirement is a sad moment for Indian Cricket.
“A cricketer like him that has played so well in the IPL and for the nation, scored three 100’s and ten 50’s, and despite that, if a player has to retire – it is a sad moment for Indian cricket,” – Gambhir added.
