When someone asks what you remember about Ambati Rayudu in his intl. career?
Yes, this moment. Playing U19 with Dinesh Karthik, Piyush Chawla, Irfan Pathan & co. and then debut for India when his colleagues almost played their part in intl. career, you must admit he is a bit unlucky.
Well, talking about this match, the only T20I in India's tour to England, 2014. Last Over, Chris Woakes the bowler, MSD & Rayudu the batsmen. It was #2vs11moment, but MSD took it as #1vs11. Not being a quicky between the 22 yards, Rayudu wanted to settle for just a single when the team required #11off5. Although, second run was taken to bring back MSD on strike. Now, #9off4ball was mistimed and goes to mid-wicket, obviously second run wasn't on. So, Dhoni kept the strike. How? He didn't run. At this very moment, I and every #mumbaiindiansfan remembered Ambati Rayudu's contributions to MI in IPL. Everyone thought it wasn't fair. Well, because India lost that match. Dhoni failed to hit Chris Woakes for boundaries. Many of us would have forgotten this moment if India had win.
Happy Birthday Ambati Rayudu!
Your match winning knocks with Pollard, Rohit & co. will be remembered. Hope to see you in #minext season too. ♥
