CLT20 2013 Statistics
Batting and Fielding
|Birth Date||23 September 1985|
A prolific run-getter since his early days in the game, Ambati Rayudu announced his arrival when he scored 177 as a 16-year-old against an England U-19 team in 2002. Stints at the National Cricket Academy and an outstanding second season in domestic cricket only enhanced his reputation. He took a transfer and now turns up for Baroda where he still scores runs consistently. The 26-year-old was held on to by Mumbai Indians, despite being one of the most sought-after players when all the IPL teams were revamped before IPL 2011. The franchise’s decision to not let him go stems from the fact that Rayudu has been one of the most consistent run-scorers in IPL, amassing more than 250 each runs in all seasons starting 2010. His 265 runs went a long way in helping MI release their dream of winning the IPL in 2013.
