Ambati Rayudu appealed to Telangana’s Minister for Industry and Municipal Administration, KT Rama Rao to look into the ‘rampant corruption prevailing in HCA (Hyderabad Cricket Association)” in a tweet on Saturday. Rayudu alleged corruption in HCA one day after taking a break for a few weeks from playing first-class cricket for Hyderabad. Rayudu cited personal reasons for the break on Friday. However, his tweet on Saturday morning tells a different story.

In September 2019, former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin was elected as HCA President.

This was Rayudu’s first tweet after the infamous ‘3D glasses’ tweet after World Cup 2019 squad selection where all-rounder Vijay Shankar was chosen over him.

The 34-year-old retired midway through the World Cup 2019 in July only to take it back in August. Rayudu, who was reluctant to play four-day games to prolong his white-ball career returned to red-ball cricket after the announcement.

In Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019, he was the second-highest run-scorer for Hyderabad with 233 runs from seven games. In the previous week, Rayudu was retained by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
