Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer T Natarajan has received hearty praise from Ravichandran Ashwin. On Tuesday, Ashwin congratulated Natarajan after he took the wicket of MS Dhoni during the clash against Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020.
Natarajan had expressed his desire of dismissing Dhoni and had said it would be an achievement for him, before the start of the game. The left-arm pacer had voiced his wish of taking the wicket of the former India captain at an interview with Ravichandran Ashwin for the latter’s YouTube channel.
Ravichandran Ashwin had inquired him in the interview about whose wicket he would think as an achievement. Without a moment of thought, Natarajan had taken the name of CSK skipper, MS Dhoni.

What’s more, the Tamil Nadu pacer proceeded to accomplish his aim of sending back the World Cup-winning skipper. Lady luck was at his side and he dismissed Dhoni at the last ball of his four-over quota. During the fifth ball of his last over, Dhoni had hit a huge six, however, on the next delivery, Natarajan dismissed Dhoni and witnessed his dream come true.
Not long after Natarajan got the wicket, Ravichandran Ashwin took to Twitter to compliment the pacer. Naming it an extraordinary moment for the left-arm pacer, the Delhi Capitals spinner tweeted on the social media platform.
“Well done da @Natarajan_91. A great moment for you.”
