If Tamil Nadu manage to beat Hyderabad in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy semifinals, it will be their third straight appearance in the final of the premier domestic T20 tournament.
Natarajan had played only two out of the four games for Sunrisers Hyderabad this season and it is understood that he never fully recovered from the knee injury he sustained on the tour of Australia.
Besides Ashwin and Pant, two other Indians -- Mohammed Siraj and T Natarajan -- are also in the fray.
T. Natarajan was ruled out of the IPL 2021 clash against Delhi Capitals after testing positive for COVID-19.
Natarajan, who went to Australia as a net bowler, became the first Indian cricketer to make his international debut across all three formats during the same tour.
Yadav along with Mohammed Shami will head to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for further rehabilitation of their injuries
Thangarasu Natarajan ruled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 last week due to the injury that he originally picked up during the tour of Australia
India have already lost Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami due to injury
