T. Natarajan Facts

  1. T. Natarajan, in his teenage years, used to bowl in local matches in Salem after having taken up tennis-ball cricket as just a hobby. Although his ambitions in cricket were not great initially, his move to the state capital of Chennai upon the suggestion of a local cricketer named A Jayaprakash turned his career around completely.
  2. There, he started by playing for minor teams in local leagues before gaining some recognition when he joined the cricket team of BSNL (an Indian government telecommunications enterprise) which used to participate in TNCA‘s (Tamil Nadu Cricket Association) fourth division league.
  3. Renowned for his yorkers and crafty bowling in the death overs in local limited-overs tournaments such as the TNPL (Tamil Nadu Premier League), he was acquired by the Kings XI Punjab (2017) franchise for a whopping INR 3 crores at the 2017 IPL (Indian Premier League) Auction, an amount that was 30 times greater than his listed base price.
  4. After an underwhelming debut season where he had picked up just 2 wickets in 6 games, he was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad (2018–Present). A strong 2020 season with the team, where he had picked up 16 wickets in 16 matches, had put him in contention for selection in the Indian national team in the limited-overs formats (ODIs and T20Is).
  5. Rising through the ranks, he played in the first division for Vijay Cricket Club for nearly a year. He ultimately began representing Jolly Rovers, a renowned and popular Chennai club that has been represented by several leading cricketers from across the country including local heroes such as Ravichandran Ashwin and Murali Vijay.
  6. He received a red-colored Mahindra Thar as a gift from Anand Mahindra (Mahindra & Mahindra group’s chairman) after Mr. Anand got impressed with his performance during the India-Australia test series in 2021.
