Cricket news: Indian cricket team’s young left-handed yorker specialist fast bowler T Natarajan has given some credit for his success to Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former captain of the Indian cricket team.
T Natarajan says that Dhoni’s advice during the Indian Premier League last year of slow bowling and cutter-like balls has helped him sharpen his skills a lot.
The 30-year-old left-arm fast bowler of India had the highest total of 71 yorker balls during the 13th season of IPL 2020. At the same time, young Natarajan dismissed batsmen like Dhoni and AB de Villiers.

He advised me to use variations like slow bouncers and cutters. It has also proved to be very useful for me. T Natarajan said about taking Dhoni’s wicket that I put him in a Ball slot. And he hit a 102 meter long six.
Then his next wicket got his wicket. But I did not celebrate. During that time I was thinking about that previous ball. And then I was much happier after coming to the dressing room. I also talked to him after that match was over.
