Natarajan replaced Varun Chakravarthy, who has been injured, in India's tour of Australia for a three-match 20-20 series. This, after the pacer made heads turn with his performance for Sunrisers Hyderabad. His knack for bowling yorkers was noticed by selectors who chose him to replace the injured player.

The IPL proved to be a game changer for the 29-year-old who has struggled with injuries and problems with his action before. This IPL was a game-changer for Natarajan. He put his foot on the accelerator for Sunrisers Hyderabad. His stint in Sunrisers however saw his pace go upto over 130 kmph. His strength is his yorker that he is able to deliver at will. The yorker he bowled to AB de Villiers in the eliminator specifically, went straight to the stumps leaving the in-form batsman flabbergasted.
