The Tamil Nadu player said that the advice given to me by CSK captain MS Dhoni in the last IPL series, such as throwing slow bouncers and throwing more cutters, was very useful to me. Sunrisers Hyderabad Team player Yorker Natarajan said.
Nadarajan, a Tamil Nadu player who played for Sunrisers Hyderabad, was noticed by everyone in the IPL last year. Natarajan, who is good at throwing yorkers, has thrown 71 yorkers in the last IPL series. MS Dhoni’s wicket and 360 degree batsman de Villiers’ stumping by a yorker are still talked about today.
Natarajan has given an interview to Cricinfo as the 14th IPL T20 series is about to start tomorrow.
In it he said:
“I had a great opportunity to talk to CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni during the last IPL series. Dhoni, who spoke about my physical fitness, encouraged me well. Dhoni told me that he can perform better only with more experience.
Dhoni advised me to bowl more balls like slow bouncers, leg cutters, in cutters while bowling and always make a difference in bowling.
When I bowled to Dhoni in the last IPL series, when I pitched the ball in the over slot, Dhoni flew it for a six to a height of 102 meters. But, on the next ball, Dhoni was out. I was not happy when Dhoni was ruled out. Only the sixer who hit the first ball was remembered. I thought about it. I was happy when I came to the lounge after the match. Then Dhoni called me and talked to me.
Another memorable moment was when I knocked out South African legend De Villiers by a yorker. That was the day I got the news that my daughter was born. Everyone applauded De Villiers’ wicket in the knockout match. I was happy. But I did not tell anyone the news of my daughter’s birth. ”
Thus said Natarajan.
