After all the talks about Dinesh Kartik and Risabh Pant, now, everyone is concentrating on Ambati Rayudu. He is India’s number 4, since the winning of Asia Cup last year. But fans are shocked not to see his name in the final list of India’s world cup squad 2019.
Selectors picked Vijay Shankar over 33 years old right-handed middle-order batsman. Most fans are really upset but this batsman seems to be showing the game spirit. He might not be selected to play in the world cup in 2019. But in his recent tweet, Rayudu showed his game spirit.
In his recent tweet which has already gone viral, star cricket wrote that he has ordered 3D glasses to enjoy the world cup. He has not selected but it seems he is okay with it. But is he making a reference to Vijay Shankar’s being a 3-dimensional player?
The real meaning behind Rayudu’s tweet
Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup ??..

A day after the announcement of Indian’s world cup squad, Ambati Rayudu posted a tweet that reads, “Just ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup.” What many people are calling batsman game spirit might be a sarcastic comment that actually showed how he is feeling now.
Vijaya Shankar replaced Rayudu
Ambati Rayudu, 33-year-old Indian cricketer has been replaced by Vijaya Shankar, due to his bad performance in Australian series. Fan’s are not happy to see him chucked out of the world cup squad. Even the former cricketer Gautam Gambhir is not happy about it.
Rayudu’s elimination from the World Cup squad is a very unfortunate thing. “It is very, very unfortunate that someone averaging 48 in white-ball cricket and is only 33 has been left out. That for me is more heartbreaking than any other selection decision,” said Gambhir.
To justify their selection, chief selector MSK Prasad said, “We did give a few more chances to Rayudu but Vijay Shankar gives three dimensions. He can bat if the conditions are overcast, he can bowl, plus he is a fielder. We are looking at Vijay Shankar as a No. 4.”
So in his tweet from 3d glasses, Rayudu might be referring to the 3-dimensional cricketer, Vijaya Shankar.
Why is everyone is talking about it?
Rayudu might have not shown how he is feeling openly, but fans are quite upset. Before the Australian series, Rayudu was India’s permanent number 4 player. He has an average of 47.05 in 55 ODIs. But the three poor games against Australia in the five-match ODI home series has made him lose his charm in front of the selectors.
Everyone thinks this is unfair, they can’t replace him because of his poor performance in the last three matches against Australia.
