Ambati Rayudu who recently made a u-turn after announcing his retirement in haste has finally responded to his “3D tweet” which gained a lot of attention. Rayudu was overlooked for Vijay Shankar and later BCCI selector said that Vijay Shankar is a 3-Dimensional player. Rayudu in haste posted a cryptic tweet, “Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup”. Rayudu who will represent Hyderabad again said that he doesn’t regret tweeting it. “Not at all,” Rayudu told Cricbuzz when asked about his tweet. “If it comes down to such things…I don’t know how to put it, but I don’t think that would’ve played any part.
And if it did, I can’t imagine what cricketers must be going through honestly,” Rayudu said explaining that his tweet was not a reason for being ignored despite being named as one of the official standbys. “As for social media, it has never been my go-to; it hasn’t ever interested me. I’ve always felt that I’m very happy being simple and natural. I can’t speak for anyone else but for me, that fame or being in front of the media has never interested me. My love for the sport and what I enjoy doing on the ground is what drives me to play the sport. All the frills and glamour that comes with it don’t interest me.”
“I was very disappointed,” Rayudu said. “I mean, anyone would be because I had worked so hard for it. I was very prepared for that specific role at No. 4, but maybe their idea of No. 4 might have changed all of a sudden. Maybe they just wanted something else…I’m not too sure. “It was very disappointing, but I’m sure they must have had some combinations or plans in mind. I was actually very, very prepared for playing the World Cup to be honest.” Rayudu added.
