The third Test of the four-match series between India and Australia will be played in Sydney from January 7. Australia replaced David Warner with Joe Burns in the squad for this Test match. At the same time, Team India has taken T Natarajan in place of Umesh Yadav, who was dropped from the series due to injury. Both Warner and Natarajan are likely to play in the third Test. Meanwhile, David Warner has expressed happiness over the selection of his IPL teammate Natarajan in the Test team.

Speaking at a virtual press conference, Warner was asked if T Natarajan could pass a test like the T20. “It’s a good question, but I’m not sure,” said his IPL captain. You must know Natarajan’s Ranji Trophy and his daily performance statistics. I know they have line and length but of course one over after another in Test cricket? I can’t say hundred percent. I think it is a great reward for Nattur (Natarajan). I think joining the team after the birth of your child as a net bowler is a huge achievement for him and congratulations for him.
Natarajan asked the former bowler about the selection – who is composing the script?
Warner gave the example of Mohammad Siraj’s performance and said that he expected Natarajan to perform similarly. The Australian opener said, ‘I know something about Siraj that he was very good at the Ranji Trophy. Seeing the way Siraj’s debut was, I hope Nattu (Natarajan) will be able to show the same kind of game if given a chance. He is a very good bowler and I have seen Sunrisers Hyderabad captain. I want to call him All the Best, if he gets the chance, we know Natarajan will not have any problem and he knows what to do. ‘
