Dhruv Jurel reacts to Sunil Gavaskar’s ‘MS Dhoni in making’ remark. Jurel scored 90 runs in the opening innings of the fourth Test against England, which was well praised by veteran cricketer Sunil Gavaskar.

With his outstanding performance in the first innings of the fourth Test match against England in Ranchi, young player Dhruv Jurel has captured public attention. In addition to keeping India in the match, his valiant 90-run innings won him praise from former great cricketer Sunil Gavaskar.

Notably, the top and middle order of India severely damage by the spin combination of England’s Tom Hartley and Shoaib Bashir. But a strong 76-run partnership between Jurel and Kuldeep Yadav allow the hosts to get back into the game. India’s deficit reduce from 134 runs at the beginning of Day 3 thanks to the partnership between Jurel and Kuldeep, who gave the Rohit Sharma-led team the extra push they needed to escape the situation at 177/7.

“Of course, he has batted well, but his keeping, his work behind the stumps has been equally brilliant. Just by looking at his game awareness, I want to say that he is another MS Dhoni in the making. I know there can never be another MSD but you know the presence of mind that he has, MSD also when he started, it was that. And Jurel has that game awareness. Street-smart cricketer,” Gavaskar said on commentary.

Jurel responded to Gavaskar’s high praise by expressing his happiness

It’s a nice feeling, and by outlining the directions that the team management had given him before he batted.

“Obviously it’s a good feeling to hear a legend like Sunil Gavaskar talk about me. The mood was great, there were no specific instructions… just to go out and play. Watch the ball and play. Just that the long I play the better it is,” Jurel quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
