You will remember that some time ago, Anand Mahindra had promised to give new Thar to 6 cricketers who had a great performance in the Australian Test series. Coming to its promise, Thar SUV has been given as a gift to Indian batsman Shubman Gill from Mahindra. Let me tell you, this car has been given to them for their great performance in the Test Series Down Under in Australia earlier this year.
However, the delivery of this SUV was taken by the family members of the cricketer as batsman Shubman Gill is currently busy playing the IPL 2021 season for Kolkata Knight Riders. Gill thanked Anand Mahindra on his Twitter, sharing photos of the new vehicle. He wrote Sir! "I am grateful and thank you very much for this gift. It has been an honor to play for India and I will strive to give my best every time I step into the fray."
It's a great feeling to receive the Mahindra Thar and I wish was there to collect this beast. @anandmahindra Sir I am grateful and a big thank you to you for this gesture. Playing for India has been an honour and I will strive to give my best everytime I step out on the field. pic.twitter.com/Dj82w1oSJ8
