Rayudu has revealed himself to be unavailable to play in the next season of the Ranji Trophy. He has made serious allegations of corruption on Hyderabad Cricket Association by tweeting. Rayudu has appealed to Telangana minister KT Rama Rao to stop corruption in Andhra Pradesh Cricket Association. Rayudu has made the allegations a day after his announcement in which he has asked for a break of a few months from first-class cricket for Hyderabad.
The Andhra Pradesh Cricket Association is headed by former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin. Ambati's blaming of the Association clearly means that he is also targeting Azhar. Rayudu wrote in his tweet, "Hello sir @KTRTRS, I request u to plz look into nd address the rampant corruption prevailing in hca. Hw can hyderabad be great when it's cricket team is influenced by money nd corrupt ppl who hav numerous acb cases against them which are being swept under the carpet".
After Vijay Shankar was selected in Team India instead of him for the ICC World Cup 2019, Rayudu disappointed and tweeted a 3D glasses related tweet to target the Chief Selector MSK Prasad. A few days later, he announced his retirement from cricket, but later withdrew it.
