Is Dhruv Jurel The Next MS Dhoni Of World Cricket? Sourav Ganguly Comes With A Heartwarming Statement

Emerging wicketkeeper-batsman Dhruv Jurel has rapidly gained widespread attention since the culmination of the Ranchi Test. In the first innings, India was facing a precarious situation when Jurel’s exceptional innings of 90 runs averted a potential setback.

Furthermore, he exhibited an outstanding display of teamwork by stitching a partnership with Shubman Gill to successfully take India to the target of 192 runs.

Dhruv Jurel’s significant role in India’s series-sealing victory has garnered immense praise from experts, leading many to draw comparisons with the legendary MS Dhoni. After the 23-year-old’s recognition with the Player of the Match Award in Ranchi, former India captain and spin legend Anil Kumble remarked that Jurel has reached the standards set by Dhoni.

However, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has a different opinion from his teammate Kumble. While speaking with RevSports, Ganguly highlighted that it took MS Dhoni 15 years to achieve the status he holds today. He emphasized that for Dhruv Jurel, it was just the beginning of his career and suggested that no such comparison should be made between them.

“Obviously, Jurel has talent but Dhoni is in a different league. It took him 15 years to be MS Dhoni. So let him [Jurel] play,” Ganguly said.

“His ability. His ability to play spin, to bat against the pace. And most importantly, to perform under pressure. That’s what you look at, a youngster. And he’s got that temperament,” Ganguly added.

Apart from Jurel, Ganguly also talked about Ishan Kishan who has been absent from the cricket scene for unspecified reasons. The wicketkeeper-batsman from Jharkhand withdrew from the South Africa Tests and has remained unavailable for India ever since.
