Gautam Gambhir-MSK Prasad’s furore over keeping Ambati Rayudu in World Cup

Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir and former selector chief MSK Prasad were on Friday spotted starring Ambati Rayudu in the Star Cricket’s ‘Cricket Connected’ show here on the exclusion of the 2019 World Cup squad. The selection committee headed by Prasad selected all-rounder cricketer Vijay Shankar for the 2019 World Cup by not picking Rayudu in the Indian team. Gambhir questioned the selection process of Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina.

Gambhir said that when I was dropped from the first Test match against England in 2016, there was no conversation at that time. You look at Karun Nair, he was not given any reason. You look at Yuvraj Singh, look at Suresh Raina.

He said look, what happened to Ambati Rayudu. You kept him in the team for two years. During this, he batted at number four. But just before the World Cup, you need a 3D player. Is such a statement expected from the chairman of the selection committee that we need a 3D player.


Prasad said that there were batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan in the upper order in the team. None of them could bowl. In such a situation, according to the circumstances of England, we wanted a player who could bat in addition to batting in the upper order. Hence Vijay Shankar was chosen.
