In January this year, Anand Mahindra announced that he’ll gift 2020 Mahindra Thar to 6 debutant cricketers of the Indian test team. Keeping his promise, Mr Mahindra has already gifted the new Thar to Shardul Thakur and T Natarajan. The debutant cricketers have thanked Anand Mahindra via a social media platform.
While the T Natarajan received a hardtop version of the new Thar in a Red Rage paint scheme, the Shardul Thakur chose to have his Thar finished in Galaxy Grey paint option. Both of these units are top-spec variants of the Thar. However, we are still unaware of the engine-gearbox combination they use. As a return gift, the T Natarajan has sent a signed jersey to Mr Anand Mahindra that he wore during the Australian tournament.
Also, T Natarajan posted on a social media platform, “As I drive the beautiful Mahindra Thar home today, I feel immense gratitude towards Shri @anandmahindra for recognising my journey & for his appreciation. I trust sir, that given your love for cricket, you will find this signed shirt of mine from the Gabba Test meaningful”.
