Anand Mahindra Fulfills Promise, Gifts Thar To Sarfaraz Khan’s Father. Watch


Mahindra Group owner Anand Mahindra lived up to his promise and gifted a Thar to Naushad Khan, father of Indian batsman Sarfaraz Khan. After Sarfaraz's Test debut, Mahindra had promised to give Naushad a Thar. It was Naushad's sacrifice that helped Sarfaraz realize his dream of representing India at the highest level. As soon as Sarfaraz made his debut, industrialist Anand Mahindra decided to gift him a Mahindra Thar. Responding to a video shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Mahindra was impressed by Sarfaraz's story and promised to give a Thar to his father.

In the viral video, Sarfaraz and his father Naushad are seen unveiling their new Thar.

Sarfaraz made his debut for India a memorable one and became the fastest batsman to score a half-century in his debut match. He scored half-centuries in both innings of his debut Test.

Mumbai's domestic legend Sarfaraz scored three half-centuries in three Test matches against England. After India won the five-match series 4–1, Sarfaraz was rewarded with his first central contract by the BCCI.

Sarfaraz had recently revealed that his father Naushad had urged him to play domestic matches as if he was playing for the country, which was delaying his selection in the Indian team despite scoring long runs in the national circuit. .

“I would ask my father when I would get a chance to play for India and whether people would support us. He used to tell me just one thing, 'Think as if you are playing for India in your next home match and Score runs' is there too.

“So my only job was to score runs wherever I play,” Sarfaraz said during the India Today Conclave here.

Sarfaraz also revealed that he received a lot of support from fans on social media, adding that his Instagram account has also seen a huge increase in followers.

Sarfaraz said, “After my Test debut, my number of Instagram followers has increased to 15 lakh. I had 600-700k followers on Instagram for the last four years. After playing for India, suddenly it has increased to 15 lakh. It is good.”
