Vaughan lauds Natarajan for bowling precise yorkers

As Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur bask in the glory for their series performance with bat and ball respectively, T Natarajan, who bowled the series-deciding over the match seems to be an afterthought. The left-arm pacer earlier in the match had given 67 runs from the nine overs he bowled. But Kohli decided to give the responsibility of bowling the final over of the match to Natrajan to a well-set Sam Curran and defend England from reaching the required 14 runs. England had 2 wickets which left Natarajan just one option, yorker, the ball that brought him under the limelight during the previous IPL season and he perfected that as expected. Natarajan in the end only gave 6 runs from the final over and helped India win a last-ball thriller. England’s former captain Michael Vaughan gave credits to Natarajan for bowling perfect yorkers in such a pressurized situation. Vaughan in a video on Cricbuzz said yorker as a dying art during this era of white-ball cricket. He also said with players taking part in T20 leagues around the world there is a perception that many bowlers can nail the yorkers. But unfortunately, it is still the hardest ball to hit right at the end. Vaughan said if missed precision the ball will definitely fly to the stand. When had the calmness and the skill to bowl yorkers under pressure you get bowlers like Lasith Malinga and Brett Lee?
