Natarajan played a crucial role in the little success SRH got last year in the UAE. The pacer was brilliant with his execution of the slower bowls along with the stock deliveries. The franchise finished third in the points table last year.

The franchise is having a hard time this year where they found it hard to cross the winning line. SRH is ranked last in the team rankings of IPL 2021 with just a solitary win and seven losses from eight matches.

SRH will lock horns with Punjab Kings (PBKS) in its next match which is scheduled to be played out on 25th September.
