She received this special gift from V. Chamundeswaranath, the former junior national selection committee chairman and now vice-president of Telangana Badminton Association.
The Indian women’s national cricket team captain Mithali Raj is now the owner of a brand new BMW 320d (3 Series), which was presented to her at a special felicitation ceremony held on August 1, 2017.
This is not the first time that V. Chamundeswaranath has shown this level of support towards Indian sportspersons.
Last year Chamudeswarnath sponsored to give BMW cars to Olympic medal winners PV Sindhu, Sakshi Malik and Dipa Karmakar for bringing fame to India at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The cars were presented to them by cricket legend, Sachin Tendulkar.
