Anand Mahindra to gift Sarfaraz Khan and his father THAR-SUV following stellar debut in Rajkot

Sarfaraz Khan made a blazing start in his debut Test innings for India against England, scoring 62 runs off just 66 deliveries.

Automobile giant Anand Mahindra has offered to gift India debutant Sarfaraz Khan and his father Naushad Khan an all-new THAR-SUV following his stellar performance in the IND vs ENG 3rd Test.

Sarfaraz, who had been knocking on the national team’s door for around two years, scored a remarkable half-century on Thursday, the first day of the third Test.

Sarfaraz’s father was in the grandstand and the commentary box, watching his son bat against England following an emotional ceremony in the morning.

“For being an inspirational parent, it would be my privilege and honour if Naushad Khan would accept the gift of a Thar,” Mahindra said in a post on X

Sarfaraz Khan’s unfortunate run out in IND vs ENG 3rd Test:

Sarfaraz Khan made a blazing start in his debut Test innings for India against England, scoring 62 runs off just 66 deliveries. The 26-year-old Mumbai batsman showcased aggressive batting with nine fours and one six, forming a crucial 87-run partnership with Ravindra Jadeja.

However, his innings ended abruptly when he was run out due to a mix-up with Jadeja, falling short of his crease by one run. A direct hit from England skipper Ben Stokes sealed Sarfaraz’s dismissal at the non-striker’s end.
