So moved by the remarkable ascent of #TNatarajan from a life of hardscrabble rural poverty to his India debut in Australia today. May India always offer hope for all its people & may genuine talent always be recognized & given the chance to rise, in all fields. Thanks to #IPL! https://t.co/Dza64uxCLW

Never stop dreaming
T Natarajan’s rise has been phenomenal. He used to play tennis ball tournaments & came from a humble background. TNPL gave him a platform & he played IPL in 2017 for KXIP. Was phenomenal for SRH in IPL 2020. Deserves to play for India. Never stop dreaming

Since he is known as the yorker specialist, it is very likely, T Natarajan can create ripples alongside Jasprit Bumrah. All eyes will be on the newbie. For now, Indian scoreboard reads 4/0 in the 2 overs.
