Being a youngster, Dhruv also dreamt of making his debut against India. On the third Test against England, he made his Test debut in Rajkot. That was a dream come true moment for him and his family.

Playing Test cricket was a childhood dream and it was coming true.”

On Batting Approach in the Fourth Test Match:

In the fourth Test match, when India’s top order was devastated by the English bowling attack, Dhruv Jurel played a responsible knock of 90 runs. That pushed Team India to a fighting total. When he was asked about his batting approach, Jurel said, “ I was not able to sleep last night. I was just thinking about how I could spend more time in the middle, add runs, and help the team. The more runs I scored, the less the team would require while chasing, so that was all I was thinking even while at the wicket today.” 

Competition in the First-Class Cricket and the ‘Call-Up’ Moment:

Before making his debut for India, Dhruv Jurel was a well-known face in domestic cricket. But there is a lot of competition. On this matter, he said, “I have believed in putting in hard work since I was a child. If people put 4-5 hours a day, I focused on giving 7-8 hours. There is no alternative to hard work. The competition is very tough in domestic cricket, so the only goal was to make the most of the opportunity you have.”

The Call-up moment of India is cherishable to all the cricketers. The situation was same for Dhruv Jurel. He said, “When I was named in the squad, I called my parents and their happiness forced me to put it on social media. My mom doesn’t know much about the game, but she knew it was for India. My mom doesn’t watch a lot of cricket, is scared of me getting out, and she is very emotional. She just knows how many runs I scored and the catches I took.”

Difference Between First Class and Test Cricket and the Epic Celebration:

Playing Test cricket for India on the global stage and first-class matches have differences. When he was asked about this, he said, “When I was named in the squad, I called my parents and their happiness forced me to put it on social media. My mom doesn’t know much about the game, but she knew it was for India. My mom doesn’t watch a lot of cricket, is scared of me getting out, and she is very emotional. She just knows how many runs I scored and the catches I took.”

Dhruv Jurel was seen doing a ‘Salute’ Celebration. When he was asked about this, he opened up. He said, “Yes, that was for my father. Even in U-19 cricket when I scored, I used to celebrate this way. Even if my dad was not there on the ground, he must be watching it on TV, so it was for him.”

The 90 Run Knock and Team’s Praise

In the fourth Test, he played an impactful knock of 90 runs. That helped India to push the runs on the scoreboard. But he missed the century. Dhruv Jurel said, “There are no regrets. I want the team to win and lift the trophy. It was a beautiful moment, everyone was applauding and admiring but the only thing in my mind was the game is not over and I have to keep wickets next.”
