IND vs ENG: Natarajan reacts emotionally on missing the upcoming Tests

Indian young-pacer T Natarajan is going to miss the first two Tests against England scheduled to start from February 5. The 29-years old was the highest wicket-taker in the T20I series against Australia that precluded the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He made his Test debut in the final Test of Border-Gavaskar Trophy and helped his team to cease the series over the hosts.

Natarajan plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League and is an emerging star of the Indian Cricket Team. Natarajan is said to rest by the BCCI and because of which he will miss the first two Tests. However, the pacer said that he will feel bad but rest is also required as he did not spend much time with his family.


“Definitely [missing being part of the squad], especially after being with the team for the last few months. But I do understand that it’s important to take a break, Given that I did not spend time with the family in the last six months, I am fine with it. But undoubtedly, I will feel bad that I’m not able to be with the national team when they are playing in Chennai,” said Natarajan.

Also, Nataraj said that he wants to play in all the formats and want to be the key player of the Indian Cricket Team.

“I am looking to play in all formats and will maintain my workload accordingly. I am keen to work on my strength and endurance levels in the coming months. This is the first time I’ve played for six long months at a stretch in my life. Because I trained continuously during those months of lockdown, I was able to take care of the workload in IPL and in Australia.
