Ganguly hailed Jurel, but urged everyone to let him play and refrain from making any comparisons.

I like his ability to play spinners and fast bowlers and most importantly to perform under pressure,” said Ganguly during a recent interaction.

Notably, Jurel impressed one and all with his glove work and batting in the fourth Test against England. He has taken sensational catches and played match-winning innings in the two Test matches so far.
