Anand Mahindra, on Friday, posted a brilliant message on Twitter after receiving a signed jersey from India’s latest bowling sensation T Natarajan. On Thursday, Natarajan took to the social media platform to thank Mr. Mahindra for gifting him the Thar SUV. The chairman of the Mahindra Group had promised to gift the SUV to six Indian youngsters including Natarajan for their performance during the Border-Gavaskar Series in Australia earlier this year.
The other five players were – Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj, Shubman Gill, and Navdeep Saini. The youngsters had played a key role in India’s monumental 2-1 win Down Under. The visitors came from behind to win the four-match Test series and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India were without several key players including Virat Kohli for the most part of the series but it did not stop them from registering the famous triumph.
Natarajan had a dream tour as he made his debut in all three formats after being initially picked as a net bowler. The left-arm pacer picked up six wickets in three T20I matches and two on his ODI debut. He then made his Test debut at the Gabba and made it memorable by picking up three wickets to help India register a series-clinching win.
Anand Mahindra’s reply to T Natarajan:
Recognizing Natarajan’s performance, Mr. Mahindra promised to gift him the SUV immediately after the series ended. And the Tamil Nadu ace received the four-wheeler recently. On Thursday, he took to Twitter to thank Mr. Mahindra for his gift and also gifted him a signed Test jersey.
“Playing cricket for India is the biggest privilege of my life. My rise has been on an unusual path. Along the way, the love and affection, I have received have overwhelmed me. As I drive the Mahindra Thar today, I feel immense gratitude towards Anand Mahindra for recognizing 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,” Natarajan wrote.
It did not take Mr. Mahindra long to reply to Natarajan as he came up with a heartwarming message. Thanking Natarajan for the gift, Mr. Mahindra said he would wear his signed jersey with pride as he tweeted:
” Thank you Nattu. I will treasure the return present & wear it with pride…@Natarajan_91″
