Filled with top-class talent and skills, T. Natarajan has turned out to be the man India was looking for all this while. His fairytale saga started from IPL 2020 when he turned heads with his pinpoint Yorkers and got named in India’s squad for Australia. He got the first chance to show his calibre when he replaced injured Navdeep Saini’s in India’s 3rd ODI against Australia. He picked two wickets by conceding 70 runs in 10 overs and gave everyone a glimpse of his capabilities.
In the recent while, he became the first Indian cricketer to mark his international debut across all the formats in a single tour. He has been amid a lot of praises for his constant brilliance in the tough tour, and in the same light, former Indian great Virender Sehwag has stepped up to congratulate him. The great batsman added that T Natarajan’s story is stuff made of dreams, and he is too happy for the talented pacer.
“Natarajan’s story is a stuff dreams are made of. Feel delighted for the young man,” Sehwag tweeted.

In the three T20Is he played, he named six wickets under his belt and kept bagging a lot of praises from big names in the cricket fraternity. India won the series 2-1, and he emerged as one of the most economical bowlers from the Indian lot.
