Despite the hiccup in the ODI format India came back to win the T-20 series 2-1. Right from the time Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya turned the match around in the final ODI India have been a different side. The shortcomings of the first two ODI’s were forgotten as India went all guns blazing in the T-20. Almost everyone chipped in one way or the other despite the bad fielding and we managed to wrap the series in the first two T-20’s itself. One of the main architect of this turnaround is our very own Yorker Natarajan.
From the gullies of Tamil Nadu to IPL to the big stage it has been a very rapid rise for Namma Paiyan Natarajan. He’s grabbed his chances and delivered when it mattered. An economy of 6.9 with 8 wickets is no mean feat. Everyone was happily enjoying our boy’s growth. But something very special happened in the last match. Hardik Pandya after winning the Man of the Match said that Natarajan deserved the award for bowling well on a batting wicket. Today even as Hardik was handed the man of the series award he gave it to Natarajan saying that he deserved the award. A lovely gesture indeed.
