T Natarajan picked up his maiden wicket in the ongoing game between Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad with his trademark yorker. The left-arm pacer castled Lalit Yadav with a brilliant delivery to put SRH firmly in the driver's seat at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.

In a game where batters scored runs for fun, T Natarajan bowled two brilliant overs. He conceded just 12 runs in his first two overs although he could not pick any wicket. After DC raced away to 81 for 2 in just 5 overs, captain Pat Cummins handed the ball to T Natarajan to bowl the final over of the powerplay.

The Tamil Nadu pacer did not disappoint as he conceded only seven runs in his first over. DC continued to score at a stunning pace and raced away to 138 for 4 after just ten overs before T Natarajan was given the ball again. The fast bowler lived up to the expectations again by bowling a tight 11th over as he conceded only five runs.

He then bowled the 15th over and picked up his first wicket of the game while also conceding only seven runs in the over. On the final ball of the over, T Natarajan went for a yorker. Lalit Yadav made room for himself and swung hard. However, he could not make any contact with the ball. The ball went on to crash into the stumps.

Talking about the game, DC were on 188/6 after 17 overs and needed an improbable 79 runs in the final three overs. Captain Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel were batting in the middle for the home side. Earlier in the innings, Jake Fraser-McGurk's 15-ball fifty gave DC a flying start but the middle-order batters have failed to capitalize on it.

In the first half of the game, Travis Head's whirlwind knock powered SRH to a mammoth total of 266 for 7. He smashed 89 from just 32 balls with the help of 11 fours and six sixes.
