IND vs ENG:India’s Dhruv Jurel Sparks Remarkable Comeback with Vital 90 Against England in Ranchi:The first day of the fourth match of the ongoing Test match between India and England produced a huge score in which Joe Root was the most successful batsman and set a record by scoring a century. Heavy batsmen came to the crutch to chase the runs but Blue kept losing their wickets easily.

Amidst the fluctuating fortunes, Dhruv Jurel emerged as a ray of hope for India. His brilliant inning of 90 off 149 balls not only revived the inning but also provided much-needed momentum. Jurel’s ability to rotate the strike and find boundaries was admirable, offering a glimpse of his immense potential for the future.

Jurrell soon slipped his team to 177/7, with England’s total of 353 still out of reach. However, the wicketkeeper batsman applied himself to a slow wicket with variable bounce and made two crucial stands with the lower-order batsmen. He added 76 runs with Kuldeep Yadav for the eighth wicket and 40 runs with Akash Deep for the ninth wicket.

India’s deficit went down to only 46 runs when he was removed in the 104th over of play. With 192 runs needed to win the Test, England was bowled out for 145 thanks to an outstanding follow-on by India’s spinners in the third inning.

Jurel missed out on his maiden Test century in his second Test, but the wicketkeeper has no regrets about missing out on the historic feat. Rather, his focus remained on winning his first test series.

“To tell the truth, I don’t rue missing out on my hundred at all because it’s my debut Test series,” Jurel said. “In truth, I’m desperate to lift this trophy with my hands, because playing Test cricket was always a big dream of mine.”

Discussing his crucial innings, Dhruv said that he worked out that it was a low-bounce wicket, and changed his shot selection accordingly.

“This was a low bounce wicket, so obviously one couldn’t score square of the wicket. It is better to score off a straight face (of the bat).

“So I tried to keep myself ready for the fact that the wicket was playing low, and tried to play as straight as possible. Even my bigger shots, I tried to hit them down the ground.”

Jurel, playing his second Test, has taken wickets for experienced spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep in conditions that have taken turns and featured variable bounce. Having been praised for his neat gloves so far, Jurel attributes his success to his ability to rise to challenges,

“They are all world-class bowlers. His bowling style is different from other bowlers, so it is a bit difficult. But I like challenges, so I like to prove myself by facing them.
