The batsman used to be the crew's number 4 since Asia Cup last 12 months. Between then and the home series in opposition to Australia, Rayudu scored one century and four fifties. A 113-ball 90 in New Zealand previous this 12 months cleared the path for India's victory after they have been tottering at one degree.

He played simplest two ODIs during the excursion of Australia, but used to be the easiest run-getter for India in the ODIs at the excursion of New Zealand, with 190 runs in five innings at an average of 63.33 and a strike rate of 82.25.
