A.T. Rayudu
Hyderabad's Batting sensation has been included in the Indian
probables for the upcoming test series against New Zealand

Hyderabad: Hyderabad's Middle order batsman A T Rayudu has been included in the Indian probables for the upcoming test series against New Zealand. Infact he has been included in the Saurav Ganguly -led Indian seniors side for the Challenger series which will serve as a platform fot the Selectors for Test series.

Middle order batsman A T Rayudu became the youngest Ranji player for Hyderabad playing at the age of 16 years and four months.This was during Hyderabad vs Himachal Pradesh five-day Ranji Trophy pre- quarter final match at Gymkhana Grounds in January 2002.


He was a total let down in the three Tests series that the Indian colts played against England. He had scores of 15,9 and 13 in the first two Tests and then he was dropped for the third Test.

But then the dashing Hyderabad lad came out with flying colours in the One day series against England which helped India win the series 3-0.He opened the innings instead of his No3 position in the one day series against England.He began with 34 and got 80 in the next one-dayer and eventually in the last one dayer he was unbeaten on 177 to pull off a sensational win for India at Tauton.Having to score 304,India were reduced to 137 for 6 but Rayudu pulled out a great victory for India.

Then in November The Gymkhana ground, Secunderabad saw the prodigiously talented Ambati Rayadu hold centrestage.The young man smashed 210 off 232 balls,including fours sixes and 26 fours as Hyderabad were dismissed for 353 at the end of their four-day .Two days later at the same ground, 17-year-old Ambati Rayudu pressed his claims for an India cap, following his 210 in the first essay with an unbeaten 159 in Hyderabad's second innings against Andhra. The 161-ball scorcher contained as many as 17 boundaries and five sixes. With Rayudu in such blazing form, the Hyderabadis managed to set Andhra a daunting fourth-innings victory target of 376.

In the cricketing circles Rayudu is the talk of the town and If he continues his form then its just a matter of time for him to be called for the National side.
