The Hyderabad-based informed about the update on their official Twitter handle and wrote: “Our Yorker King is here.”

Natarajan was part of the India T20I and ODI squad which recently played against England. He, however, featured in the playing XI in just one T20I and ODI against England.

In the ODI series decider, he bowled the last over of the match and defended 14 runs to hand India a thrilling win. Natarajan also took the key wicket of Ben Stokes in the match and he finished with the figures of 1-73.
