T Natarajan had a very impressive campaign during Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, playing a key part in getting SunRisers Hyderabad to the knockout stages.
A yorker specialist, Natarajan picked up 16 wickets in as many matches for SRH, who were knocked out in Qualifier 1 by Delhi Capitals.
His impressive displays saw him called up to replace Varun Chakravarthy in India's T20 squad against Australia.
Chakravarthy, who also received his maiden call-up was left out of the squad due to an injury.
India will begin their tour of Australia with a three-match ODI series, beginning on November 27. A three-match T20 International series will follow the 50-over matches.
The tour will conclude with the four-match Test series.
