In an unexpected turn of events, former Indian batter Ambati Rayudu met Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan just four days after parting ways with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy's YSR Congress Party on Wednesday, January 10.

It has been already been reported that Rayudu met Pawan Kalyan earlier today. The 38-year-old made his foray into politics by joining YRSCP. However, just 10 days later, Ambati Rayudu resigned from the party due to his participation in International League T20 (ILT20) in Dubai, which requires him 'politically non-affiliated'.

Taking to his X handle (formerly Twitter), Ambati Rayudu has confirmed of him meeting Pawan Kalyan at his residence, while hinting at joining Jana Sena Party after finishing duties with Mumbai Indians in the upcoming season of the ILT20.

Ambati Rayudu has already sparked confusions over his aspirations in the field of politics, raising several eyebrows by meeting Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan shortly after his departure from YSRCP. It was reported that Rayudu didn't figure in Andhra Pradesh's Jagan Mohan Reddy Guntur plans and thus, he decided to quit the party. For unversed, Ambati Rayudu is native of Guntur.

Rayudu wrote on X.

"Due to some reasons and I have not seen myself fulfilling my dream going forward with ysrcp. No blames. My ideology and ysrcp’s ideologies have not aligned and it has definitely nothing to do with contesting elections and x and y seat. I have decided to move on from politics."
