While all the eyes were on Sarfaraz Khan (deservedly so), another young talent Dhruv Jurel also made his big debut in the third Test against England in Rajkot. On Thursday, as Jurel joined the Indian team, tears of joy couldn’t stop from the eyes of his parents after seeing their son represent the country.

There was a time when Jurel’s parents could not afford a cricket kit for him. His father had to mortgage his gold chain to buy him a kit after he threatened to run away from the family. All their hard work and sacrifices have finally paid off and Jurel made them proud.

“Imagined, manifested, and rehearsed this day so many times ever since I first picked up the bat. My dream came true 🇮🇳,” said an emotional Jurel as he received the Test cap. Now, he is showing his love for the country with his bat.

He has been trending on X (Twitter) after executing a stunning ‘Ramp Shot’ against a blistering 146kmph delivery by England’s Mark Wood. Making a bold statement on his debut, Jurel hit a massive six against Mark Wood.

Cricket lovers cannot get enough of his spectacular shot. Not only fans, his amazing shot even left Captain Rohit Sharma amazed who seemed super happy for the young talent.

“Dhruv Jurel announces himself with a classy six in Test cricket,” commented a fan.

Another user wrote, “What a shot by Dhruv Jurel, you can’t be bad at cricket when your idol is MS Dhoni.”

“Mark Wood is the stand out bowler of the match, but Dhruv Jurel said who cares. You need courage to play this on your debut and Jurel showing no nevers,” commented a third fan.
