T Natarajan has finally started his journey with Team India. The last few weeks have been absolutely surreal for the left-arm pacer from Tamil Nadu. He recently  replaced Varun Chakravarthy in India’s T20I squad for the upcoming series against Australia after the spinner was omitted due to a shoulder injury.

The left-arm pacer was previously named only among the reserve group of net bowlers but has now been included in the main squad. T Natarajan had a breakthrough season in IPL 2020 and will be looking to perform in the same manner in his maiden international series if he gets a chance.

His ability to bowl yorker at will stood out this season as he bowled as many as 71 of them, more than double anyone else. His yorker to dismiss AB de Villiers in the Eliminator was one of the best deliveries of the tournament. T Natarajan finished IPL 2020 with 16 wickets in 16 games.

T Natarajan took another step towards realising his dream of playing for India on Sunday by bowling in the nets. The pacer would be looking to make a mark in training in order to further impress the team-management. The BCCI posted a clip of the pacer bowling in the nets with the caption:

“We have seen him bowl with a lot of success in the @IPL and here is @Natarajan_91 bowling in the #TeamIndia nets for the first time after his maiden India call-up! A dream come true moment. “

India are scheduled to play three ODIs, three T20Is and four Tests in Australia. The ODI series will kickstart the tour on November 27.
