Dhruv Jurel's brilliant debut broke the 30-year-old record of the Indian legend

Two players made their debut for Team India in the Rajkot Test. First of all, Sarfaraz Khan made headlines by playing an inning of 62 runs in 66 balls in his debut match. After this, debutant Dhruv Jurel also created a stir by playing his first international match for Team India. He missed his half-century by four runs but his innings of 46 runs made a lot of headlines. In this innings, Dhruv hit two fours and three sixes. During this, he faced Mark Wood's balls with a speed of 150 kilometers per hour very well and batted brilliantly.

BCCI praised

Dhruv Jurel, who became the 312th Test player for the Indian team, definitely scored 46 runs but he won everyone's hearts with his batting. He played 104 balls in this innings. Meanwhile, one of his upper cut sixes made a lot of headlines. Dhruv Jurel hit Mark Wood for a six on a ball traveling at 150 kmph.

Additionally, Dhruv Jurel became the second-highest run-scorer for India on Test debut. Earlier this record was in the name of Nayan Mongia. Nayan Mongia held this position for 30 years but now he is the third batsman and Dhruv Jurel is at number two. Now it remains to be seen how Dhruv's wicketkeeping is. If he continues to play like this in the coming days and also shows his aggressive attitude, then it may be difficult for KS Bharat. Also, the return of Rishabh Pant will also be a challenge.

Wicketkeeper who scored most runs in debut test

  • Dilawar Hussain- 59 runs (England, 1934)
  • Dhruv Jurel – 46 runs (England, 2024)
  • Nayan Mongia – 44 runs (Sri Lanka, 1994)

India scored 445 runs

The Indian team lost 7 wickets for 331 runs at the beginning of the second day. After this, Dhruv Jurel along with Ravichandran Ashwin got India out of trouble and made a partnership of 77 runs for the 8th wicket. Jurel showed his attitude and due to this India's score crossed 400. In the end, Jasprit Bumrah also showed courage and took Team India's score to 445. Right now England's second innings is going on, it remains to be seen how many runs the visiting team can score.
