IND Vs ENG Ranchi Test Sunil Gavaskar Calls Dhruv Jurel Next MS Dhoni After Jurel Fifty In Ranchi


Dhruv Jurel fifty IND vs ENG Ranchi Test:Β Promising young talent Dhruv Jurel emerged as a formidable force, thwarting England’s plans to wrap up India’s innings cheaply on day 3 of IND vs ENG 4th Test in Ranchi. The 23-year-old batsman notched his maiden Test half-century, amassing a career-best 90 runs. Despite Shoaib Bashir securing his maiden five-wicket haul, Jurel’s resilient innings propelled India to a total of 307 runs. His crucial contribution notably narrowed the deficit to just 46 runs, firmly keeping India in contention in the match.

India were reeling 219/7 when Jurel and his overnight partner Kuldeep Yadav joined forces to push India’s total beyond 250. Despite trailing England by 176 runs, the duo’s steadfast partnership gradually reduced the deficit to less than 100 runs.

England, batting first, posted a total of 353 runs. In reply, India were bowled out for 307, conceding a 46-run lead to England.

“Watching the presence of mind of Dhruv Jurel makes me think he’s the next MS Dhoni in the making,” said former India captain Sunil Gavaskar during the commentary.

Amidst the struggle of other Indian batters, Dhruv Jurel showcased his brilliance by reaching his maiden Test half-century with just 3 fours and a six.

Dhruv Jurel’s emergence as a competent wicketkeeper-batsman comes as a positive development for captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid. Since Rishabh Pant’s injury, India faced challenges in finding a reliable wicketkeeper who can also contribute with the bat. Additionally, with KL Rahul sidelined due to injury, the need for a dependable backup keeper became even more crucial.

As India aims to maintain its position at the top of the WTC Standings, they have to continue to rely on promising players like Dhruv Jurel.Β
