Melbourne: David Warner is very happy to have Sunrisers Hyderabad teammate T Natarajan join India’s Test team but he is not sure that the Tamil Nadu left-arm fast bowler is in a consistent position in the Test Will you be able to bowl on the length or not.
T Natarajan joined the Indian team as a net bowler after performing quite effectively in IPL 2020 but after that he got an opportunity to make ODIs and T20 Internationals.

Asked if Natarajan can repeat his T20 success in a test format, David Warner gave a very interesting answer and said, ‘Good question but I’m not quite sure. You people will know his Ranji Trophy statistics and how he bowls when he bowls continuously.
He said, ‘I know he has a good line and length but what will happen when he bowls continuously in Test matches. I am not 100 percent sure. However, Warner said that like Mohammad Siraj, who performed effectively in first-class cricket, Natarajan can also succeed in doing so.
He said, ‘I have a good idea about Siraj and how well he has done in the Ranji Trophy, he bowls well for many consecutive overs. Looking at his (Siraj) debut, I hope Natarajan can do it if he gets a place in the Test team.
Warner was very appreciative of Natarajan, who was unable to be present during the birth of her first child due to being part of the IPL and national team.
He said, ‘I think this is a great reward for Natarajan. I think given that he came here to become a net bowler and was not present during the birth of his first child and then he made a place in the main team which is a great achievement and congratulations for that.
