Rohit said of rookie Natarajan (3 wickets for 78 races): “To be honest Natarajan played really well. He was playing out of the country for the first time and bowling in front of so many experienced drummers, it wasn’t that easy and he wasn’t under any pressure.
He said, “From the first ball he was good. He has shown restraint, he is a player with a strong personality, who does not speak much but we all know that he is a player with a strong personality. They want to do well for the team and for themselves. He will stay here.
Rohit said the overall Indian Akare bowling experience was 4 test matches, given that they should be commended for bringing Australia together for so many races at the friendly box office.
Rohit said: “ More of these bowlers are playing in Australia for the first time. Siraj has played 2 games and Saini has played in Sydney. They certainly don’t have a lot of experience.
He said, “But he was very disciplined and if I have to assess the performance of these bowlers, I would say he played really well. It’s still good ground. It was a great experience for him in which he tested himself by playing bowling with the best drummers.
