"Good things happen to good people. I feel Natarajan deserves every bit of it. For us, Nattu waited initially because he didn't get an opportunity to play for Sunrisers whereas the start of the camp in Dubai because of the lockdown, we had a 2 weeks camp. Right from that first day in that camp, he was in excellent rhythm which means even during the lockdown, he was working on his fitnesa and even his bowling. He looked in fantastic rhythm while some of the other bowlers were not. And then he got to play for us right from the first match.

 What impressed me the most, which is very important if you have to perform at the highest level is the mental strength and the fortitude which is required. He displayed. Once Bhuvi left us because of an injury, he bowled the tough overs for us and once you do that you're ready and prepared and he got the self belief. Because of that, I felt he got the opportunities, even though he went there as net bowler, he got the opportunities to play the ODI, then the T20Is and the Test match. He was ready for that," Laxman told Boria Majumdar on Sports Today.
