Talking about the matches held in IPL so far, Dhruv Jurel has left the most impact as an impact player. Before him, Tushar Deshpande has won the match for Chennai and Jurel could not win the match for his team, but the impact Jurel has left in the match, no player has been able to do so till now.
Chasing a target of 198 runs against Punjab, the Rajasthan team scored 124 runs in 15 overs and lost six wickets. This team needed 74 runs in 30 balls to win. In such a situation, Dhuv Jurel batted at number eight and batted aggressively with Hetmyer.
Together these two added 58 runs in four overs. Now in the last over, Rajasthan needed 16 runs to win and Sam Karan gave only 10 runs. Rajasthan’s team lost the match by five runs. Dhruv Jurel remained unbeaten after scoring 32 runs in 15 balls with the help of two sixes and three fours.
He could not win the match for his team, but stopped the breath of the opposition team. Punjab captain Shikhar Dhawan also said this after the match.
Dhruv Jurel appeared in this match for the first time in IPL and made an impact, but this 22-year-old player has done many big things at a young age. He hails from Agra and his father was in the army who participated in the Kargil war.
Jurel was born in 2001 and was not even 10 years old when his father retired from the army as a Havaldar. At this time, Jurel was studying at the Army School in Agra. His father wanted the son to become an officer in the army and serve the country like him.
For this reason, Dhruv’s father Nem Singh Jurel asked his son to participate in sports related activities. When a sports camp started in school for two months, Dhruv arrived with two of his friends to participate in swimming. All the sports were happening here and a boy was taking excellent shots while playing cricket. Dhruv liked it very much and left swimming and wrote his name in cricket.
In the beginning of his career, Dhruv used to bowl off-spin, but his bowling was nothing special. In such a situation, he tried his hand at wicketkeeping and in this role he impressed everyone. Along with this, he became a middle-order batsman as well as a wicket-keeper. When Dhruv turned 12, he demanded a cricket kit at home. It was not common for a father retired from the army to buy a cricket kit without thinking twice.
Also, he wanted the son to become an officer in the army, because of this he was not buying the kit. In such a situation, Dhruv said that if he does not get the cricket kit, he will leave the house. In such a situation, his mother sold the gold chain and got the kit for the son.
Seeing Dhruv’s interest and talent in cricket, his father also started supporting him. After this Dhruv never looked back. He was selected in the country’s Under-19 team in 2020 and was also made the vice-captain. His team lost to Bangladesh in the final of the World Cup, but Dhruv won the Under-19 Asia Cup under his captaincy.
He wants to captain like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, trapping the opposition batsmen with composure and finesse behind the wicket, he won the Under-19 Asia Cup by defending a very small target by five runs. At the same time, in batting, he considers AB de Villiers as his ideal. In terms of fitness, Jurel is a follower of Virat Kohli.
Now he has shown his talent in IPL. He can get more chances in the upcoming matches and in such a situation, he can present a claim for Team India by playing big innings. The 22-year-old Dhruv still has time to hone his skills.
