Anand Mahindra gifted Mahindra Thar in 2021
In the 2021 India-Australia test match series, India won the last test match of the tournament to clinch the series with a stellar performance. Riddled with injuries, the team that played the last test match had as many as six debutants. Anand Mahindra applauded the performance made by them and announced that each debutant would receive a brand-new Mahindra Thar.
He used Twitter to announce the gift and also applauded the players for the recent historic win. Shardul Thakur, who also made his debut in the series but got injured and did not play in the last game, was included by Anand Mahindra in the list of debutants who would receive the all-new Thar. Interestingly, Mohammed Siraj made his debut in that series as well, and Mahindra only gave the cars to debutants.
The tour of Australia comprised various forms of games. In the test series, both teams played four tests, and many players were unable to participate due to injuries and unavailability. With the new players, the team won the series 2-1. During the tour of Australia, Hyderabad debutant Mohammad Siraj became the leading wicket-taker for India, earning 13 wickets in three matches. Shardul and Washington played key roles in batting and bowling in the final test match in Gabba. This was the first time that an away team had won at the Gabba, Brisbane, after 32 years. In the last match, Natarajan picked three wickets for 78 runs in the first innings, contributing to the team’s exceptional performance.
