Mumbai: Team India captain Virat Kohli praised rookie pacer T Natarajan after the 2-1 T20I series win over Australia on Tuesday.
Kohli gave a special mention to Natarajan on India’s series win and said that the left-arm seamer stood out in the absence of senior pacemen Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah.
Natarajan was the highest wicket taker in the three-match T20I series with 6 scalps under his belt.
“Special mention for Natrajan, in the absence of (Mohammed) Shami and Jasprit (Bumrah), he stood out and really delivered under pressure,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.
Kohli said Natarajan is a humble and hard-working player, who is sure about what he is doing.
“It is outstanding because he is playing his first few games at the international level. He looks very composed, he is a humble and hard working guy, he is sure of what he is doing.”
