AMBATI RAYUDU IS TAKING the Chennai Super Kings spirit to the other side of the world with him.
The former Indian international, who announced his retirement from regular competitive cricket during IPL 2023 where he was playing for CSK, has revealed that he will still carry the iconic yellow colours but in the USA.
Major League Cricket, the top T20 competition in the country, is launching its first season this year and Chennai Super Kings own a franchise in it called Texas Super Kings. This new team uses the classic CSK colours and emblem, which has given Rayudu, along with all CSK faithfuls, to be 'texcited' about the team's debut season.
Other CSK players in the Texas team include Michael Santer and Devon Conway. CSK bowling coach Dwayne Bravo is also a part of the team, making his return to the field as a player.
Other overseas players picked by Texas Super Kings in the draft are David Miller, Damiel Sams and Gerald Coetzee.
The MLC will kick off on 13th July with Texas Super Kings facing Los Angeles Knight Riders.
