IND vs ENG 4th Test: Wicketkeeper batter Dhruv Jurel played a brilliant innings to lead India to the series victory against England at Ranchi. Veteran Indian players seemed very impressed with his performance and even credited the same to his Army background. Former Indian batter Suresh Raina said that Dhruv Jurel's "fearless attitude" on the field comes from his Army upbringing.

"I was impressed with his (Jurel's) wicket-keeping, he has worked really hard. He comes from an Army family, so he has that fearless attitude of never wanting to lose anything from anywhere," Suresh Raina said while speaking about the young player.

Dhruv Jurel played an exceptional 90-run innings on Sunday to narrow down England's big lead against India. The batter received a standing ovation from the crowd on Day 3, even as he missed on his century by 10 runs. On Day 4, Dhruv Jurel stood strong with Shubman Gill under pressure and steered India's innings to a 5-wicket victory at Ranchi.

"He's (Jurel) been amazing, I have played a couple of matches with him for Uttar Pradesh. Special credit to Rohit Sharma, for the way he gave chances to Sarfaraz (Khan) and Dhruv Jurel. It is not easy to come into Test cricket and score back-to-back fifties, especially in a crucial Test match where the wicket was turning," Suresh Raina added.

Suresh Raina speaks on IPL 2024

While speaking on the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, which is starting from March 22, Suresh Raina said that he really wishes Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore pick up the trophy this time.

"I wish Virat Kohli and RCB lift the trophy. It is long overdue now, CSK won it last season too but this year I hope that the team who has never lifted the trophy should finally add one to their trophy cabinet. Virat has worked really hard and I think he deserves to win this time," said Suresh Raina.
