However, Yadav fell victim to James Anderson after contributing 28 runs. Dhruv Jurel achieved his maiden Test fifty on the first ball of the 90th over, expertly dispatching Tom Hartley’s delivery. Notably, he narrowly missed the milestone in Rajkot, being dismissed for 46 runs off 104 balls.

Rohit Sharma and his teammates applauded Dhruv Jurel’s achievement, and the young batter graciously acknowledged the crowd’s support by raising his bat. It’s noteworthy that Jurel’s father, Nem Chand, served in the Indian army as a Kargil war veteran.
