How Did Dhruv Jurel Handle Missing His Maiden Test Hundred?

Rohit Sharma and his men are currently in a driver’s seat to win the fourth test match of the series, which is currently being played in Ranchi.

However, one of the major reasons for team India’s winning this Ranchi test was the knock, which was played by young wicketkeeper Dhruv Jurel. Batting on his home ground, Dhruv Jurel played a memorable innings as the young wicketkeeper scored 90, which included six boundaries and four sixes.

Although Dhruv Jurel was a bit frustrated when he got out on 90, missing out on his maiden test century by just 10 runs, he showed no regrets after the end of the day’s play.

On the other hand, Indian spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Ravi Ashwin completely dominated the test match, as both spinners went on to pick nine wickets together, bundling the visitors by just 145 in the second innings.

After the day’s play got over, the young wicketkeeper said that he did not mind missing his hundred but that he wanted to win this series for India on his international debut.

Jurel said “To tell the truth, I don’t mind missing out on my hundred at all because it’s my debut series,” Jurel further stated. “I’m very desperate to lift this trophy in my hands, because playing Test cricket for India was always a big dream for me. This was a low bounce wicket, so obviously scoring square of the wicket is quite hard. It is better to score off a straight face (of the bat).
So I tried to keep myself ready because the wicket was playing low, and I tried to play as straight as possible. Even my bigger shots, I tried to hit them down the ground.”

Team India now just needs 152 runs more to win with 10 wickets in hand.
