Team India has been suffering from a back to back Injury list in this Australian series starting from Rohit Sharma in early days of the series followed by Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma and Shami.
In the Second Test match , Umesh Yadav suffered a calf muscle injury in the middle of the second Innings . Since , Team India did not have a fast bowler in their squad. So Team management announced Natarajan left arm fast bowler from our Tamil Nadu had a chance of making his Test Debut in Australia. Thangarasu Natarajan, who travelled as back up bowler and also he impressed in both T20 series and ODI series with his bowling skills for the Team now he will be replaced for the next Two Test Matches for Border- Gavaskar Trophy. Since Saini was already in the bench as an fast bowling option it depends on his Saini’s fitness for Natarajan place in the playing XI .If Team India required for left arm option for the two matches Natarajan will get a Dream Debut for Test Match in this series .
