India after bogging down under pressure in first Two ODI matches against Australia came back stronger in last ODI where they lost the ODI series but they set the momentum going forward for the T20 series to register T20 series victory against Australia by 2-1 in a three-match series. There have been several performers who stood up and perform in the recently concluded white ball series one such name was T Natarajan who was initially selected in the team as a net bowler and later when Varun Chakravarthy was unfit he was selected in T20 and ODI squad. He was sensational with the ball for India and never felt like that he was playing his first International match in Australia.
Natarajan coming from a humble background and delivering on the field against Australia has made million fans all over the world and one player who is extremely happy with the achievement of his fellow SRH teammate is skipper David Warner who wrote a heartwarming post congratulating, Natarajan, for his amazing performance.
Warner wrote on his Instagram account “Win lose or draw we respect each other on and off the field. Despite losing the series I couldn’t not be any happier for this guy @natarajan_jayaprakash such a nice guy and just loves the game so much. From being on the tour as a net bowler to debuting ODI/T20i for India what an achievement buddy well done!!”
With the way Natarajan has performed, he has received praise from Indian skipper too who said in a post-match conference that “Natarajan is a big asset for us in the long run especially with his ability to deliver yorker in death overs is simply commendable. He is grounded and he backs his own skills which is good to see with T20 world cup around he will be a big player for us”.
In the recently concluded three-match T20 series he picked six wickets and on most occasions remains the most economic bowler for Men In Blue.
Natarajan, you were outstanding this series. To perform brilliantly in difficult conditions on your India debut speaks volumes of your talent and hardwork 👏 You deserve Man of the Series from my side bhai! Congratulations to #TeamIndia on the win 🇮🇳🏆 pic.twitter.com/gguk4WIlQD

With the likes of Shami, Bumrah and now Natarajan added in the T20 squad for India the bowling lineup will be lethal and will not be easy for any team to score runs against them easily as they have ability to take wickets in bunch in crucial situations.
