According to the revealed images, T Natarajan chose a hard-top model in Red Rage colour for himself. Shardul Thakur, on the other hand, picked the Galaxy Grey paint scheme. Obviously, both of these units are top-spec models with all the bells and whistles. However, it remains unknown what powertrain option two cricketers have chosen. T Natarajan has sent Mr Mahindra the signed jersey that he wore during the Australian tournament. Also in this tournament, T Natarajan has his big break as a debutant in the Indian cricket team and contributed to the team’s historical win. He also tweeted,
“As I drive the beautiful Mahindra Thar home today, I feel immense gratitude towards Shri @anandmahindra for recognising 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”.
