Industrialist Anand Mahindra on Thursday raised the cricket fever by announcing a riddle, promising that early birds will get ‘Mahindra collectible scale model toy car.’ Mahindra, whose social media posts have often evoked overwhelming responses from netizens, asked about a cricketer, who’s as good in the 50-0ver game as he was in chess.
He wrote, “With #TeamIndia in the semis,cricket fever is intensifying. Let me fuel that fever with a riddle: ‘Talented in 64 squares; unstoppable in 50 overs’ Guess who this Indian player is.. Fastest fingers to the right answer wins a Mahindra collectible scale model toy car….”
