“I was not able to sleep last night,” Jurel confessed in an interview with Jio Cinema’s ‘Match Centre Live’. “I was just thinking 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.”

Jurel’s focus and determination paid off as he went on to score a career-best 90 in just his second Test match, forging a crucial 73-run partnership with Kuldeep Yadav. This defiant knock not only revived India’s hopes but also showcased Jurel’s temperament and skill under pressure.

Faith in Tailenders and Dedicating Success

Jurel, who emerged as a national hero for his twin batting heroics, also emphasized the importance of supporting the tailenders. “The most important thing is having faith in the tail-enders,” he stated. “You need to make them feel confident about their batting, stay at the crease and make them believe that this is doable.”

His dedication extends beyond the field, as evidenced by his emotional response to dedicating his success to his parents who have been his constant source of strength.

Sharing the Joy with Parents

Jurel, visibly emotional after securing India’s victory, couldn’t help but share the moment with his parents, who have played a pivotal role in his journey. “When I was named in the squad, I called my parents and their happiness forced me to put it on social media,” he revealed.

He further described his mother’s emotional connection to the game: “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.”

Jurel also shared his father’s spiritual guidance: “The moment was very precious for me, everything was in slow motion in that moment and I was just staring. My parents were very happy and emotional. Playing Test cricket was a childhood dream and it was coming true. My parents are very spiritual. When I called my dad for the match, he was confused. He said the runs that you score, dedicate it to the Gods.”

Jurel’s story is not just about exceptional cricketing talent, but also about the unwavering support of his family and his unwavering dedication to the team. As he continues to write his cricketing journey, the world awaits his next chapter with bated breath.
