Shastri: Natrajan is the best pacer to throw yorker
Natarajan was missed in the T20 World Cup. Sunrisers Hyderabad team may have faced defeat in IPL match played against Lucknow Supergiants on Monday night.

Strong bowler in death overs
Shastri said I am very happy for Natarajan. He got injured when we were playing the ODI series against England. He missed a lot in the World Cup. Had he been fit, he would have been a part of the team that played the World Cup. Shastri said Natrajan is a specialist in death overs. His yorker ball is very accurate and lethal. He has very good control over the yorker. And he throws this ball at a very high speed.
