Reflecting on his interaction with Dhoni, Jurel expressed gratitude for the learning experiences gained from each encounter. He emphasized his aspiration to meet Dhoni post the international game, hoping to glean further wisdom from the seasoned campaigner.

โ€œMy first interaction with him was in IPL 2021, which was my first season. At that time, I was pinching myself to see whether it is a dream or not,โ€ said Dhruv Jurel in a video shared by BCCI.


Meanwhile, Jurel’s impactful performance with the bat and his adept wicket-keeping skills have solidified his position in the playing XI. Following the absence of Rishabh Pant, the Indian team experimented with KS Bharat and later Ishan Kishan in the wicket-keeper role. However, it was Jurel who seized the opportunity and made a compelling case for his inclusion in the squad.
