99.94: Why T Natarajan is IPL 2020’s breakthrough star

From not having touched a cricket ball till he was around 20 and having no expectation of playing professionally, the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s bowler T Natarajan has now become this IPL’s yorker king. In his piece about him, cricket writer Sandip G points out that during this season, the bowler has ‘landed 27 in the block-hole in seven games; Jasprit Bumrah, the most vaunted yorker expert, has only been able to muster 17 this edition’.

In this episode, Sandip joins Gaurav and Mihir to talk about the fascinating journey Natarajan has made as a cricketer, what makes him a great bowler, how the lack of formal training at a young age works to his advantage, and the challenges that players from the south face in getting recognized.
