The All-Rounder said it hurt when a Cricketer looks forward to play World Cup and suddenly he don't find a place in the Playing XI. He feels sad about the fact that Rayudu retired after World Cup snub.
Selection Committee headed by MSK Prasad preferred Vijay Shankar over Ambati Rayudu to play at 4th Position in the World Cup and the Hyderabadi was chosen as Stand-By. Both Shikhar Dhawan and Vijay Shankar got injured but Team Management preferred Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik and Mayank Agarwal over Rayudu.
Ambati Rayudu has got impressive average of 47.05 scoring 1,694 runs in 55 ODIs. Still, Kohli, Coach & Selectors hadn't picked him up for No.4 Slot.
