He said, ‘A player, the rule will surprise. But of course he cannot speak about it, because he is new. This is T. Natarajan. The left-arm yorker fast bowler, who made a brilliant debut in T20 and Hardik Pandya shared the T20 series award with him for the first time.

Gavaskar said, ‘Natarajan became a father for the first time during the IPL playoffs. He was taken directly from UAE to Australia and then, given his outstanding performance, he was asked to remain there for the Test series, but not as a part of the team, but as a net bowler.
