Profile

Ambati Rayudu was touted as India's next great batting hope ever since he started training at the National Cricket Academy in 2001. A pint-sized, fluent strokemaker with a compact technique, he blazed an unbeaten 177 - after opening the batting - as India's colts completed a clean sweep of a one-day series in England in 2002. The Ranji Trophy season that followed, his first, was also exceptional - including a double-century and a hundred in the same match against Andhra. However, he had to wait 11 more years before finally making his international debut, in a low-profile ODI series in Zimbabwe. Keen to make up for lost time, Rayudu responded with an unbeaten 63 on debut, becoming the third-oldest Indian, at 27 years and 304 days, to score a fifty on ODI debut.
