Warne raises doubts on Natarajan’s no balls, gets trolled for making spot-fixing claims

T Natarajan  has had a dream run ever since, he made a entry to the Indian team, be it the T20Is, ODIs or Tests. The left-arm pacer, who bagged 3/78 in the 1st innings, has caught the attention of legendary spinner Shane Warne who levelled serious allegations against the pacer. Warne, without exactly uttering the words, has clearly alleged Natrajan of spot-fixing over a few no-balls from the southpaw. The left-arm pacer bowled 6 no-balls during Australia’s first innings and a couple more on Day 4 of the 4th Test. Shane Warne, on commentary, went on to say that the 5 of those no-balls were off the first delivery of the pacer’s over and suggested something suspicious. 

"Something that’s caught my eye when Natarajan was bowling. He’s bowled 7 no-balls & they’ve all been big ones. 5 of them have been off the first ball & they’re miles over. We’ve all bowled no-balls, but 5 of them off the 1st ball of an over is interesting,” Warne said on air. Indian fans have slammed the Australian for making such a nasty judgement on the 29-year-old from Salem. Fans have reminded Warne of Natarajan’s background and how much hard work the pacer has put in to have come to this level.Natarajan made his international debut, in the same tour, in the 3rd ODI against Australia and was lauded for his performances in the limited-overs leg before he made his Test debut at the Gabba.
