Medium pacer T Natarajan, who came to Australia as a net bowler, on Friday became the first Indian cricketer to make his international debut across all three formats on the same tour. The final Test of the series began on Friday in Brisbane.

The Tamil Nadu man was drafted in to the playing XI at the Gabba as injuries left the visitors in a spot of bother, especially in the bowling department.

He made his international debut in the 3rd ODI against Australia on 2 December in Canberra, where India won by 13 runs.

The 29-year-old made an immediate impact by taking two wickets for 70 runs from his 10 overs.

Natarajan then played his part in India’s 2-1 series win in the subsequent three-match T20 International rubber by taking six wickets during the series.

“Welcome to Test cricket … Thangarasu Natarajan becomes the first Indian player to make his International debut across all three formats during the same tour,” the ICC tweeted.

Along with Natarajan, Washington Sundar also made his Test debut in Brisbane.
