Ravichandran Ashwin has congratulated Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer T Natarajan after the latter dismissed MS Dhoni during the clash against Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday.
Before the start of the game, Natarajan had said dismissing Dhoni would be an achievement for him. The left-arm pacer had expressed his desire of dismissing the former India skipper during an interview with Ravichandran Ashwin for the latter’s YouTube channel.
“Whose wicket will you consider an achievement,” Ravichandran Ashwin had asked.
In the very next moment, Natarajan replied:“Dhoni.”
And the Tamil Nadu pacer went on to achieve his goal of sending back the World Cup-winning captain. Incidentally, the wicket came off the very final ball of his four-over quota. On the fifth delivery of his final over, he was hit for a huge six by Dhoni before sending back the wicketkeeper-batsman on the final delivery.
Soon after Natarajan picked up the wicket, Ravichandran Ashwin took to Twitter to congratulate the pacer. Calling it a great moment for the left-arm pacer, the Delhi Capitals spinner tweeted:
“Well done da @Natarajan_91. Great moment for you.”

Natarajan has impressed with his ability to bowl yorkers in the ongoing IPL 2020. He has featured in all of SRH’s eight games so far and has done well. In eight games so far, he has picked up eight wickets.
As far as the match is concerned, CSK finished their innings on 167 for 6 while batting for the first time in IPL 2020. Shane Watson top-scored with 42 while Ambati Rayudu scored 41. Dhoni (21) and Ravindra Jadeja (25) also played fine cameos to help CSK put up a respectable total.
