Veteran India and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) left-arm pacer T Natarajan made headlines with his recent announcement as he shared the news of the opening of his dream project. The veteran pacer took to his social media handle to drop a major update as he shared the inauguration of his ‘Natarajan Cricket Ground’, which will take place on Friday, June 23 as well.
However, T Natarajan made the announcement of his dream project way back in December 2021, just a year after his debut for Team India. He did this to promote the sport in his village in Chinnappampatti of Salem district as well. The left-arm pace bowler also took to his social media handle to share the inauguration date as well. Meanwhile, he also shared that veteran India wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik, Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Vishwanathan and Indian film star Yogi Babu will be part of the inauguration as well.
“Extremely delighted to announce the opening of my dream-come-true project- Natarajan Cricket Ground.
– 23rd of June, 2023
– Chinnappampatti, Salem District,” shared Natarajan on his Twitter handle.
Notably, T Natarajan made his India debut during an ODI match against Australia in December 2020. However, battled with injuries, he has failed to cement his spot in the national team, which has, in turn, given other youngsters chances to be in the team as well. As far as his numbers in the international circuit are concerned, he has seven scalps in four T20Is, three scalps each in two ODIs and one Test appearance so far. Moreover, in the recently concluded IPL 2023, T Natarajan featured in 12 matches for the SunRisers Hyderabad franchise and picked up ten wickets at a rather underwhelming average of 9.11 as well.
However, T Natarajan was signed by Ba11sy Trichy for INR 6.25 lakh on the first day of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2023 auction as well. The tournament will begin on Monday, July 12, whereas Trichy will start their campaign against Dindigul Dragons on Wednesday, June 14 as well.
