The ongoing Brisbane test match which is being played between India and Australia has reached at an interesting stage and the third day is going to be of great importance. The Australians have posted a decent score of 369 on the board with the help of Marnus Labuschagne’s century (108) and Tim Paine’s fifty (50). Apart from them, some useful contributions were also made by Matthew Wade (45), Cameron Green (47) and Steve Smith (36).
In response, India has scored 62/2 with both its opener back in pavilion. Talking about the Indian bowling, T. Natarajan, Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur took 3 wickets each while Mohammed Siraj dismissed one wicket.
T. Natarajan’s name has become synonymous with the accurate Yorkers and his performance in the IPL 2020 was so mind-blowing that the selectors didn’t have any other option than selecting him for the Australian tour. T. Natarajan made his international debut in the third ODI because Navdeep Saini was ruled out due to injury and we must say that he made the full use of this opportunity by picking up two wickets in the match.
T. Natarajan has become an integral part of the Indian T20 squad and in the three T20Is that he played, he took six wickets and impressed everyone with his talent and skills. He was asked to stay in Australia for the net sessions and he was not a part of the Indian playing squad but luckily for him, he got the chance to play in the fourth and final test of the series. Moreover in the recent past, he is the only player to play for the country in all the formats.
The former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag is also pretty impressed with the pacer and he took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to express his feelings. Viru paaji wrote, “Natarajan’s story is a stuff dreams are made of. Feel delighted for the young man.”

T. Natarajan also made a sensational debut in the test matches as he took 2 wickets on the first day of the match.
We wish him all the best for the future and hope that India will win the series by winning the Brisbane test.
