In 1992, Ambati’s father made him enroll at the cricket academy run by Vijay Paul, the former Hyderabad cricketer. Paul later recalled those days when the cricketer’s father used to ferry his son on his scooter to attend various cricket camps and matches.  

In the late90s Ambati kickstarted his professional cricketing career by representing Hyderabad in the Under-16 and Under-19 levels. Later, in 2000, he was picked for the India Under-15 squad at the ACC Under-15 Trophy and an incredible performance in that tournament paved the way for him to be selected for the senior team of Hyderabad. 

When he was just 16 years of age, Ambati Rayudu played his debut first-class match for Hyderabad in the 2001–02 Ranji Trophy. The following year, in the 2002–03 Ranji Trophy, he achieved the distinction of becoming the youngest player ever to score a double century and a century in the same match in the history of the Ranji Trophy. At the 2004 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, Ambati was chosen as the captain of the Indian team.

On 24 July 2013, Ambati Rayudu played his debut ODI match for India against Zimbabwe. The very next year, i.e. on 7 September 2014, the cricketer made his T20 debut for the country by playing against England.
