India’s Young Cricketer Dhruv Jurel Eager to Develop Mental Fortitude in Maiden Test Call-up

India, January 18, 2024:** Dhruv Jurel, the promising young cricketer who recently earned his maiden call-up to the Indian Test squad for the series against England, is set on a quest to develop mental strength and resilience in the high-pressure environment of international cricket.

Learning Mental Fortitude at the Highest Level

In an interview with the Rajasthan Royals’ official website, Jurel emphasized the importance of mental fortitude in sustaining oneself at the highest level of the game. He expressed curiosity about how seasoned players deal with bad days, face criticism, and manage pressure.

“I really want to know how these players deal with bad days, how they face criticism and pressure,” said Jurel. “Once you’re in the public eye on a much bigger stage, you are constantly judged on your performances. So I am going to try and absorb it all.”

Surprising Call-up and Overwhelming Reaction

Jurel, who played two unofficial Tests for India A in South Africa, was in the midst of a tour match against England Lions when he received the unexpected news of his call-up. The young cricketer, who had earlier scored a brisk 50 in that tour game, expressed his shock and excitement at the news.

“I was shocked. I was with the India A team, playing against the England Lions in a two-day match,” shared Jurel. “When I found out, I immediately called my father, and his first question was, ‘Which Indian team? Aren’t you already playing for one of them?'”

Messages from Teammates and Mentors

Despite gaining exposure in foreign conditions and excelling in white-ball cricket, Jurel acknowledged that adapting to the longer format was a gradual process. Having played 15 first-class games with notable performances, including a century and five fifties, he now feels confident in handling all three formats equally well.

Jurel, set to share the dressing room with Yashasvi Jaiswal once again, received congratulatory messages from his Rajasthan Royals teammates. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler were among the first to extend their best wishes, with Buttler encouraging Jurel with a message, “Good to see you in the Indian team, long way to go.”
