Just a day back, Mahindra reacted to India’s loss in the opening test against England in a rather optimistic way. The Englishmen decimated Virat Kohli and Co. in the first Test by a comprehensive 227-run margin in Chennai. Starting from the first day of the five days of the game, England showed dominance and exposed India’s deficiency. Joe Root and Co. continued to overpower throughout the innings with a double hundred from the captain himself. Taking to social media, Mahindra said some encouraging words for Team India.
Life is wonderful. It always tells us to expect the unexpected; To never underestimate the chances of the challenger. I’d also like to believe that our team are great scriptwriters. They know that you need tragedy to set the stage for great triumphs... https://t.co/4pHMOJORsG— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) February 9, 2021
