New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson was mighty pleased by the progress made by his Sunrisers Hyderabad team-mate Thangarasu Natarajan. According to the number one Test batsman, the talented Indian player deserves all the praise that he getting at the moment.

Williamson further added that Natarajan was an amazing guy and his exceptional performance in Australia, where he went as a net bowler, was phenomenal.

“Natarajan is just an amazing guy. What a fantastic IPL tournament he has had. And the opportunities and the doors that opened for him just week by week as he ended up playing the Gabba Test and what a famous victory that was for India.

“You know (this is) just an incredible time in his life and I appreciate, I suppose, to have some involvement just being his team-mate in the last IPL and some of the years before,” Williamson told Sports Today.

Williamson feels fortunate to have played with the Indian pacer.

“But an amazing story and such a humble guy and a fantastic talent that India has right there. I think also with his age, as well, he has just blossomed and become such a mature cricketer in such a short period of time, without playing a huge amount of cricket.

“I’m fortunate to play with him and it was awesome watching how he played going to Australia and taking up those opportunities as well,” he added.
