In the Brisbane Test against Australia captain Ajinkya Rahane was shocked by the inclusion of two new faces in the playing XI of Team India. On behalf of the Indian team in Brisbane, all-rounder Washington Sundar and fast bowler T. Natarajan made a Test Cricket Debut. (T Natarajan Test Debut)
While Sundar made his first victim Australian star Steve Smith, Natarajan also took two wickets on the first day of the fourth test. But not these wickets to Natarajan, but his first test got him a place in the record book. And also such a record which till date no more Indian bowler could make in more than 1600 international matches of Team India. Come, let’s understand what the hell is?
International debut in all format on the same tour
This is the first test match of T Natarajan who landed in the Brisbane Test. Earlier, he also made his debut in ODIs and T20 cricket on the current tour of Australia. This means that T. Natarajan has become the first bowler in Indian cricket history to have made all three formats of international cricket on the same tour. It is also amazing that Natarajan was taken as a net bowler on the Australia tour. But from here, his luck completely reversed.
Impressed by Yorker
First of all, he got a chance to play in the last match played in Canberra of the ODI series. After this, he impressed everyone with his performance in the T20 series. In this series, he received a lot of praise from his yorker. Natarajan was a part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the 13th season played in the IPL of UAE, where he took 16 wickets in his name. Due to this performance, it was decided to take them to Australia. However, after the injury of Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, and now Jasprit Bumrah, Natarajan got an opportunity to make a test debut.

Natarjan has played 20 first class matches
The achievement of 29-year-old T. Natarajan is even greater because in cricket history the Indian team has played more than 1600 international matches so far but to date, no Indian bowler has been able to make all three formats on the same series. Team India has played around 550 Tests, 990 ODIs, and more than 130 T20 matches so far. Natarajan has played 20 first-class matches in his career, in which he has taken 64 wickets.
