Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Sandeep Sharma got married days before flying to the UAE to participate in the second leg of the IPL 2021. The seamer bowler tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Natasha, who is a Jewellery Designer.
The franchise on Friday morning took to Twitter to announce this joyous news. They welcomed Natasha to the SRH family and congratulated the couple for their new association with each other.
“A special addition to the #SRHFamily. Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Sharma to a lifelong partnership!” the post was captioned.

Meanwhile, Sandeep Sharma, who represented India in a couple of T20Is in 2015, will look for improvement on the field in the second half of the IPL 2021. He picked just a solitary wicket in three matches in the first half and leaked runs at an expensive economy of 10.38.
Predominantly a new ball swing seamer, Sandeep Sharma joined the Sunrisers in 2018 from Punjab. In 39 games for the franchise, he has snapped 39 wickets.
T Natarajan cleared to fly to the UAE after recovery after knee surgery
T Natarajan has been cleared to fly to the UAE for the remainder of the season. The left-arm pacer underwent knee surgery in April after he had pulled out of the tournament. He played two matches in the India leg of the IPL 2021 before being sidelined due to an issue in his knee, which, it was reported then, he had been carrying since returning from Australia.
After the surgery, he trained at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for three months. Now, he has recovered and is set to leave for Dubai with the SRH contingent on August 31. This will be a boost to the bottom-placed Sunrisers as Natarajan has been the in-form bowler.
Natarajan rose through the ranks during the IPL 2020 in the UAE. He snapped 16 wickets in the season at an economy of 8.02. The most impressive aspect of his bowling was his pinpoint yorkers – he bowled the most yorkers last season.
He was then selected for the Australia tour where he picked 6 wickets in 3 T20Is, and then three wickets in the Brisbane Test, where he was given a Test debut after being held back as a net bowler.
Natarajan remains in India’s plans for the T20 World Cup; the remainder of the IPL 2021 games present him the perfect opportunity to showcase his fitness and make a bid for a place in the T20 World Cup squad. SRH’s first game back will be against table-toppers Delhi Capitals in Dubai
