Indian fast pitcher T Natarajan took to Instagram on Monday to share a photo of his daughter, Hanvika, when she was four months old. “Our little angel Hanvika,” he captioned the photo with his wife and child, and added a heart-shaped emoji. “You are the greatest gift of our life. You are the reason our life is so much happier. Thank you, my dear, for choosing us as parents.
Natarajan missed the birth of his daughter as he was in Australia after receiving his first call-up for the national team. Originally taken only for the T20 International (T20I) series, injuries saw it also make its ODI and Test debut for the country.
Natarajan was selected for the T20I series after an impressive outing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
His first game in the national colors came in the third ODI against Australia in Canberra, where he picked two wickets as India won by 13 points.
He went on to take three wickets on his T20I debut at the same venue and finished the series with six scalps to his name.
His test debut came in India’s historic series victory at Gabba, where he won three wickets in Australia’s opening rounds.
Natarajan was rested for India’s ongoing test series against England so he could spend time with his family. However, he was named to the squad for the T20I five-game series starting March 12.
