Sunil Gavaskar has lauded Dhruv Jurel for his exceptional batting and wicket-keeping abilities, drawing parallels to Indian Cricket team batter and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. During the commentary of the Day 3 of the 4th Test matches, Gavaskar stated that Jurel is another MS Dhoni in the making.

During the commentary, Gavaskar said, “Of course he has batted well, but his keeping, his work behind the stumps has been equally brilliant. Just by looking at his game awareness, I want to say that he is another MS Dhoni in the making. I know there can never be another MSD but you know the presence of mind that he has, MSD also when he started, it was that. And Jurel has that game awareness. Street-smart cricketer."
