So, in the end, the coronavirus won. In spite of the best efforts taken by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the 14th edition of the IPL had to be suspended. A number of players, including Varun Chakravarthy, Sandeep Warrier, Wridhimann Saha, and Amit Mishra were affected by the coronavirus, and there was no other option left with the BCCI but to postpone the tournament, keeping the safety of the players in mind.
Now, the BCCI has stated that there is a possibility that the IPL might once again be restarted in September. And, if the BCCI manages to once again restart the IPL in September this year, there are a few injured players who can return back to action.
In this article, let us take a look at 4 players who can make a comeback if the IPL is staged in the month of September this year.
4. Thangarasu Natarajan
Thangarasu Natarajan could play just 2 matches in the 14th edition of the IPL. The left-arm pacer’s knee injury aggravated again during the 2021 IPL season, and he had to go under the knife to repair his knee.
Natarajan could not make much of an impact in the 2 matches that he played in IPL 2021 and picked up just a couple of wickets. And, if the IPL is restarted in September, Natarajan can fully recover from his injury and make a comeback to the side.
The left-arm pacer was in scintillating form in the 2020 IPL season that was held in the UAE. He picked up 16 wickets for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) side last year and picked his wickets at a strike rate of 23.56. The ‘Orange Army’ will be hoping that Natarajan returns back to action soon.
