This has led many to believe that the Sunrisers Hyderabad star is likely to make his debut in the third Test against Australia starting in Sydney on January 7. The Australian tour only seems to get better and better for Natarajan, who earlier made his ODI and the T20I debut for India in the tour after being flown to the country as a net bowler.
He replaced the injured Varun Chakravarthy to get a foot into the T20I India side and then came into the ODI side replacing Navdeep Saini. While he picked up two wickets on his ODI debut, he ended as the leading wicket-taker, with six dismissals, in the three T20Is versus Australia.
India are without several key bowlers ahead of the 3rd Test, with Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav ruled out.
Natarajan had a dream season in IPL 2020 where he took 16 wickets for Sunrisers Hyderabad as his team bowed out in the Eliminator of the tournament, and was crowned as the yorker specialist.
