IPL 2023 RR vs CSK: Ambati Rayudu registers his name to an embarrassing record list

During the RR vs CSK Clash – Ashwin sent Ambati Rayudu back to the pavilion for a duck. The dismissal of Rayudu raised concerns among netizens and cricket experts, who believe that the role of an impact player is not easy, especially when batting in the second innings.

Rayudu, who was brought in as an impact player, failed to make any impact with the bat. His struggle against Ashwin saw him getting out on the second ball he faced.

Ashwin tossed an off-break outside off, tempting Rayudu to go for a slog sweep. However, Rayudu failed to connect it well and found Jason Holder near deep mid-wicket, who took a comfortable catch.

It is not the first time that Rayudu has struggled to score runs while playing as an impact player. The role of an impact player puts extra pressure on the batsman, who is expected to come and score quick runs without taking much time to settle in. It is a demanding role that not every player is comfortable with.
