Virender Sehwag praised Dhruv Jurel for his excellent performance despite not receiving much media attention, emphasizing his exceptional skills and composure in a challenging situation.

Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag praised young wicketkeeper-batsman Dhruv Jurel for his exceptional batting display during the 4th Test against England in Ranchi. Despite not receiving much media attention, Jurel showcased remarkable skills and composure, scoring a gritty 90 runs off 149 balls. His partnership with Kuldeep Yadav for the 8th wicket contributed crucial runs, helping India surpass the 300-run mark.

Sehwag commended Jurel’s performance on social media, acknowledging his ability to shine in challenging circumstances. Despite falling short of a century, Jurel’s contribution of 90* was instrumental in India’s total of 307, earning him well-deserved recognition.

“No media hype, no drama, just some outstanding skills and quietly showed great temperament in a very difficult situation. Very Well done Dhruv Jurel. Best wishes,” Sehwag wrote on X.

Sehwag’s initial post garnered mixed reactions, with some agreeing and others accusing him of singling out players. He later clarified that his intention wasn’t to target anyone specifically but rather to advocate for equal recognition based on performance.

Emphasizing that hype should be proportional to players’ contributions, Sehwag highlighted outstanding performances by various individuals like Akash Deep, Yashasvi, Sarfaraz, and Dhruv Jurel. He urged for fair acknowledgment of all players’ efforts, advocating for equal hype across the board.
