The team achieved the immense feat by lacking star player Virat Kohli along with Ashwin, Jadeja, Shami, KL Rahul, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Vihari.
Players garnered royal welcome in their respective towns and are were appreciated by crores of people across the world including cinema celebrities, political personalities and cricket legends. Anand Mahindra, to express his appreciation, announced a surprise gift for the six players who debuted in the Australia test series. He said that he will be gifting each of them a new THAR SUV on his own account.
Natarajan, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Mohammad Siraj, Washington Sundar and Shubman Gill are the six debutants who received the gift from the chairman of Mahindra groups.
Theirs are true ‘Rise’ stories; overcoming daunting odds in the pursuit of excellence. They serve as an inspiration in all arenas of life. It gives me great personal pleasure to gift each of these debutants an All New THAR SUV on my own account—at no expense to the company.
