Thangarasu Natarajan became an irreplaceable assert of team India as he proved himself in the 4 matches he played in the Australian tour. The left arm pacer from Salem, Tamil nadu has grabbed a separate place in the team through his outstanding performance in the T20 series. He picked 6 wickets in the three matches he played with an economy below 7 runs per over which impressed critics and fans. Now, as Bumrah got ruled out from the ongoing test series due to injury, Natarajan is highly expected to make his test debut through the fourth and final test against Australia.
