Tamil Nadu fast bowler Natarajan played two seasons in the IPL, taking 18 wickets after playing 22 matches. Natarajan took 16 wickets in 16 matches for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL this year. He also threw more than 30 yorkers this season, the highest.
Samson is also being considered as a replacement for Dhoni

At the moment, he was only selected for the ODI team for the tour of Australia.
Siraj’s debut in Test series from Australia is difficult
Mohammad Siraj has been selected in the Indian team for the Test series against Australia. It is very difficult for him to get a chance in the first Test when Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma. There are 4 Tests in the series, so it is possible that Siraj can be given a chance in the end or in the middle. However, it looks a bit difficult.
Navdeep made his ODI debut in ODIs and T20s
Navdeep Saini took 11 wickets in 13 matches while making his IPL debut last year. After this he got a place in the Indian team and made his international debut in ODIs and T20s against the West Indies. However, he could not do anything special in this IPL season. He took just 6 wickets in 13 matches. He has now been included in the Test team for the tour of Australia.
Navdeep can play the role of third bowler
In the Test series against Australia, Mohammed Shami can play the role of the third bowler along with Jasprit Bumrah. Although the Indian team also has Ishant Sharma, but he has recovered after the injury. In such a situation, he can rest in the first match, but there is no such confirmation. If Ishant stays out of the playing eleven, Navdeep could get an entry.
