Indian Yorker sensation T Natarajan underwent surgery on Tuesday to treat a knee injury that had excluded him from IPL-14.
Sunrisers coach Hyderabad was kicked out of the League last week due to the injury he initially suffered while touring Australia earlier this year.
He thanked the BCCI and the medical team for looking after him.
“Today I had knee surgery – and I am grateful for the expertise, care and kindness of the medical team, surgeons, doctors, nurses and staff. I’m grateful to @bcci and everyone who wished me well, ”Natarajan tweeted.

Natarajan, 30, had only played two games for the Sunrisers Hyderabad this season.
It is understood that he never fully recovered from his knee injury due to the heavy workload he endured while touring Australia.
After the tour in Australia, he went to rehab at the National Cricket Academy. He is believed to have been declared fit to make a limited-series comeback against England although he is not 100% ready for the game.
Natarajan became an overnight sensation with his Yorkers to the death in the last IPL and went on to play all three formats for India in Australia.
After returning to India from Australia, it was never made public that he suffered a knee injury.
