Rayudu began his IPL journey with MI back in 2010. He won three trophies with them (2013, 2016, 2017) before moving over to Chennai where he won two more trophies (2018, 2021). His best season was the 2018 title-winning campaign for CSK where he scored 602 runs in 16 matches.

In the IPL 2022 mega auction, CSK bought back Rayudu for INR 6.75 crores considering his valuable experience. Unfortunately, the team failed to perform as a whole and they crashed out of the tournament after a loss against MI.

He has had a lackluster season by his standards so far, with 271 runs in 12 matches at an average of 27.10 and a strike rate of 124.31. It includes a high score of 78 against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in a losing cause.
