NEW DELHI: After the historic win by Team India against Australia at the Gabba, businessman Anand Mahindra has announced to gift Mahindra Thar SUV to six members of the team.
Complementing for their hard-work, grit and resolve, Mahindra posted on Twitter, “Six young men made their debuts in the recent historic series #INDvAUS (Shardul’s 1 earlier appearance was short-lived due to injury)They’ve made it possible for future generations of youth in India to dream & Explore the Impossible (1/3).”
Mohammad Siraj, T Natarajan, Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar, Shubman Gill and Navdeep Saini, played a pivotal role in India’s 2-1 Test victory.
This is not the first time, Mahindra has made such a gesture towards sportspersons. He had gifted an TUV 300 to Kidambi Srikanth after winning a Super Series Title in 2017. Earlier, India fast bowler Mohammed Siraj on Friday posted a video of a luxury car on his Instagram handle. The BMW car can be seen with a temporary registration plate indicating that it is brand new. Siraj also posted a video of him driving the car in Hyderabad.
An unbeaten 89 from Rishabh Pant helped India clinch a thumping 2-1 series win over Australia today.
This was also Australia’s first defeat at the Gabba since 1988.
With a record victory target of 328, India achieved it with three wickets left to be spared thanks to the efforts of Pant on the final day of the last of the four-Test series to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
